Hydrazine Mobile Training Team in Chile
U.S. Staff Sgt. Daniel Salazar, 56th Maintenance Group hydrazine Mobile Training Team instructor, monitors Chilean Air Force members as they properly record the weight of a hydrazine tank at Los Condores Air Base, Chile, Nov. 13, 2018. Hydrazine is a back-up fuel used in F-16 Fighting Falcons that allows a pilot to regain control in the event of an electrical or hydraulic failure. When the hydrazine is released it creates a chemical reaction that allows the pilot to manually maneuver the aircraft in order to land it safely. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Angela Ruiz)
