With the help of the Portland Air National Guard’s F-15 Eagle, the 627th CES tested their aircraft arresting system, BAK-12. The F-15 was going 80-100 knots when it landed on the runway and subsequently engaged the cable system to come to a stop. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Callie Norton)
