A section of the Service Platoon, the Aircraft Maintenance Section, better know as "Intruder Maintenance," kept the aircraft flying and shooting. Working with the Crew Chiefs and Door Gunners, Intruder Maintenance performed the unit level maintenance on the aircraft and weapons systems. Combined with the 483rd Transportation Detachment and the 499th Signal Detachment, Intruder Maintenance produced an 85 to 90% Operational Readiness Level (OR) almost all the time. Due to the excellent maintenance on our aircraft, many of them are still flying today, some in the National Guard and others in Allied Countries. A listing of company aircraft can be viewed by clicking the "Intruder Aircraft List" link above.
