One of the sayings we know goes, “fighter pilots make movies while bomber pilots make history.” That’s a very true statement, but without maintainers, not a single pilot could make anything happen. They’d be grounded. From refueling their aircraft to checking the strength of rivets, these men and women keep these aircraft flying in tip-top shape.

To show you that nothing is really an easy task for them, watch the quick video below to see what it takes to perform a tire change on a B-1 Lancer. It sure ain’t like changing one on a Prius.

I have to admit, pilots are like QBs, they get all the glory, however the real heros are the maintainers like @halownr and @beech19 Let’s hear it from all pilots out there who are grateful for their maintenance personnel !!!! @pilotstuff @limeyflyer @theglobemaster @emb_av8tr @troybflying ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#Repost @megaaviation ・・・ #avpic #avgeek #avpics #avgeeks #aviation #crew #cockpit #flight #flying #instapilot #instaplane #instaviation #aviation #jet #justaviation #plane #planes #pilot #instaplane #spotter #airplane #crewlife #pilotlife #pilotview #instagramaviation #aircrew #airlines #flightdeck
