Damage to KC-135 outside fuselage skin

Example damage casued by the nose landing gear door while using the standard Air Force web-belt strap on Sept. 19, 2018, at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington. Tech. Sgt. Shawn Roberge, 92nd MXG aircraft structural maintenance section chief, had the idea of creating a nose landing gear door lock that prevents this damage from occuring. The repair for this damage can take up to three days. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Travis Edwards)
