FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash.–Staff Sgt. Ken Wires, 92nd Maintenance Squadron aircraft structural maintenance craftsman, prepares a template to replace a corroded "Oklahoma Panel" during the Aircraft Periodic Inspection here Aug. 6. After preparing the template, the holes can then be transferred and drilled to the new panel. Upon completion, the edges are sealed to eliminate moisture absorption and the panel is painted and ready for reinstallation. (U.S. Air Force courtesy photo)
