New here, and couldn't find a previous topic. I know that the US Air Force has 3 ALC (Air Logistic Centers) in the US, one at Tinker AFB in OK, another at Hill AFB in UT, and at Robins AFB in GA.
Tinker maintains the KC-135 , B-52, B-1, E-3, and C-130 come for some work. It is also responsible for engine maintenance of the F100, F108, F117, F119, and TF33. The KC-135, B-52, and E-3 are maintained where their engines are maintained. However the C-17, which is powered by the F117, is maintained at Robins. Like wise for the F119. I've seen the massive F117 engines being loaded onto semis to be transported.
My question is how common is this? Wouldn't it make more sense to maintain the engines at the same location that the aircraft go through PDM?
