FOD walk in the fog

fod walk in the fog

Staff Sgt. John Petrie, 433rd Maintenance Operation Squadron, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, stops to pick up a piece of debris from the flightline. Members of the Alamo Wing walk the flightline in a Monday morning ritual searching for foreign object debris. Everyone from Col. Kenneth Lewis, wing commander, to the brand new airman basics participate. The FOD is collected in a bag and properly disposed of. The wing vice commander Col. Dale Andrews, hides a gold-painted bolt somewhere to be found as incentive to be thorough during the DOD walk. Whomever finds the golden bolt wins their 15 minutes of fame and thanks from the roaring jet engines. (U.S. Air Force photo Airman 1st Class Brian McGloin)
