Bak-12 brakes jets
Airmen from the 23d Civil Engineer Squadron prepare to release an F-15C Eagle from an arresting system, Dec. 19, 2017, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. The BAK-12 arresting system is used on the runway to slow down fighter aircraft in emergency situations. The previous beam has been on Moody’s flightline since 1998, but under new guidelines will now be replaced every 10 years. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Janiqua P. Robinson)
