Eagle bath

Senior Airman Joshua Gordon, 33rd Maintenance Squadron, scrubs the wing of an F-15 Eagle in efforts to prep the jet for demilitarization. The aircraft is the second of two 33rd Fighter Wing aircraft to be demilitarized so that it may be put on permanent display. Recently another jet was shipped to the USS Alabama battleship museum. To make sure it is safe for public use, maintainers gut the aircraft's weapons, explosive devices, ejection seat, engine and anything that holds fluid or is potentially hazardous. After the wash, they will spend one week sealing all openings and another week painting the aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo/Chrissy Cuttita)
