T-6 operational pause lifted today
U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Patrick Doherty, 19th Air Force commander, and Air Education and Training Command pilots, maintainers and flight surgeons, plus NASA personnel gather for a photograph during the command’s collection and analysis of operational flight test data at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph. The T-6 operational pause which began Feb. 1 was lifted Feb. 27. Following the incidents, a team including experts from the Air Force, Navy, NASA, and medical specialties, came together to aggressively capture and analyze data from the pilots who had experienced physiological events and the aircraft. Collaboration with Navy officials allowed 19th Air Force officials to gain insights and lessons learned from similar events in the T-45 Goshawk. (Courtesy Photo)
