12th Flying Training Wing T-38C pilots and maintainers will begin using multi-function display, or MFD, covers later this month. The covers protect the glass MFD screens from the ankle restraints on the new ejection seats as well as all hazards during ground operations. They will save the wing approximately $182,000 a year in broken MFDs, all for only $3,600 – just a little more than a quarter of the price for a repaired MFD. $20 solution solves 14K problem
