Maintainers in the 388th Fighter Wing recently designed and produced new, sturdier covers for air data ports on the F-35A Lightning II. The new covers are made on a 3-D printer, from sturdy rubber-like plastic. They cost a fraction to produce in-house than buying replacements. (U.S. Air Force photo by 1st Lt. Nathan Poblete)
