Dover helps AFRL make C-17s safer, lighter, more fuel efficient
736th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron personnel installed 12 Microvanes, six on each side at the rear of a C-17 Globemaster III fuselage, Sept. 6, 2017, at Dover Air Force Base, Del. The 3D printed glass bead filled nylon Microvanes are 2.4 inches tall and 16 inches in length. This is an effort to reduce drag and fuel consumption. (U.S. Air Force photo by Roland Balik)
