Runway Makeover

Construction crews are filling an aircraft arresting barrier with concrete as an F-16 passes in the background. The arresting barrier will be used to help stop aircraft that have experienced a loss of hydrolic fluid during flight. This is but one piece of a larger project that the 140th Wing, Colorado National Guard, is performing during runway construction on its main runway on Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado. Each end of the runway is receiving significant and much needed runway repairs. This multi-million dollar project is helping to finally address many issues with the concrete and aircraft arresting systems, while also putting many construction employees in the area to work.
