Dr. Adam Pilchak, materials research engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, loads a piece of a fractured titanium disk into a scanning electron microscope. By looking at the microscopic features on the fracture surface, researchers are able to determine how the crack initiated and spreads through the component to cause the failure. (Air Force photo/Michele Eaton) AF lab investigating microscopic crack formations, metal fatigue
The B-52 Stratofortress is one of the oldest legacy aircraft in the Air Force. Since the 1950s, the B-52 has led the force in its dominance as the world’s best; however, just as humans begin to age, so do aircraft. Repeated loading and unloading, changes in air pressure, exposure to altitude and more, contribute to what is referred to as “metal fatigue,” resulting in small, microscopic cracks in engine, wing or tail structures that can have detrimental effects on safety.

An F-15E lands at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, July 8, 2016, after a mission in which Boeing F-15 mission systems recorded its first flight with the Advanced Display Core Processor. The advanced mission computer, based on commercial technology, provides multi-core processing capabilities propelling the F-15 to the forefront of fighter embedded computing systems. The ADCP II high-speed processing and interface designs enable advanced
systems integration, increased mission effectiveness, augmented fault-tolerance, enhanced system stability and aircrew survivability. (Courtesy photo)

Bob Behr, 94, experienced the entire Holocaust from 1933 until he was liberated in 1945. Behr would eventually immigrate to the U.S., where he enlisted in the Army, and later worked for the Air Force as a civilian in the intelligence field for more than 35 years. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Christopher Gross) Surviving the Holocaust: Former Soldier, AF civilian tells his story
Fear. In one word, Bob Behr used fear to describe how he and most of the Jewish community in Germany lived their lives from 1933 until the mid-1940s. In that time, Behr would suffer persecution, work in forced labor, be arrested and sent to the Theresienstadt “camp-ghetto” with his family, and ultimately, survive the Holocaust. Following his liberation in 1945, Behr would eventually find his way to the U.S., where he enlisted in the Army, and nearly five years later was discharged and worked for the Air Force as a civil servant in the intelligence field for 35-plus years.
