191st Vertical Stabilizer Repair

A KC-135 Stratotanker without the vertical stabilizer portion of its tail is seen at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., in late 2015. The aircraft had been struck by lightning shortly before landing at the base in late 2015. The aircraft landed without incident, but required extensive repairs. It has since been returned to service.
