U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Krutke, an F-35 avionics system craftsman with the 356th Aircraft Maintenance Unit (AMU), prepares to place chalks for one of the first of two F-35A Lightning II fifth-generation aircraft assigned to the 356th Fighter Squadron after its arrival at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, April 21, 2020. The F-35A, the U.S. Air Force’s latest fifth-generation fighter, brings an enhanced capability to survive in the advanced threat environment in which it was designed to operate, and the Airmen of 356th AMU will ensure the jets are prepared for their combat-coded mission.
