The US Air Force has launched the Expeditionary Depot Maintenance Flight (EDMF) to support warfighters around the world.

The EDMF is responsible for battle damage repair of C-130s, F-15s and C-5s, and consists of 56 people divided into five teams.

Two teams specialise in F-15s while three work on C-130s and C-5s. They operate as the fire department of aircraft maintenance, ready at all times to deploy to any location to get a damaged aircraft back into service.

The flight has advanced trailers called ‘war wagons’ stationed at various locations with tools needed to repair an aircraft.

When flight members are called in for a job, an alert goes out and the closest war wagon is dispatched to meet them.

The flight is the reincarnation of the 653rd Combat Logistics Support Squadron.
