SOUTHWEST ASIA – An F-15 Eagle tests a new arresting barrier system for the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing Feb. 25, 2012. The system consists of a cable stretched across a flightline and hooked up to motorized retractors on either side. If a fighter has some type of malfunction that affects its brakes, pilots can use the arresting cable to stop safely. This was the certification test for a new system, which has to be replaced every 10 years. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. J.G. Buzanowski)
