A fighter jet is soaring through the sky during a routine training mission when the pilot notices something is wrong. She radios the control tower announcing she’s preparing for an emergency landing.

This assembly is called a BAK-12 arresting system and after 10 years and new guidance, Moody’s 23d Civil Engineer Squadron power production shop is replacing every part of the system on the runway.
