Seymour Johnson Centralized Repair Facility Inactivated

The 4th Component Maintenance Squadron’s sensors centralized repair facility was inactivated during a recent ceremony at Seymour Johnson AFB, N.C., according to a May 14 release. The CRF at Seymour Johnson was one of three facilities in the Air Force that serviced both the Low-Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared System for Night and the Sniper targeting pods for fighter jets, states the release. “Throughout its lifespan, the CRF has seen the passage of more than 130 airmen and maintained an amazing 86.2 percent LANTIRN pod mission-capable rate,” said SMSgt. Josephine Krieger, the 4th CMS avionics flight chief, at the May 8 ceremony. “It gave you job satisfaction knowing you were repairing a system that would help lead aircrews to where they need to go and drop munitions,” said SrA. Patrick Johnson, 4th CMS avionics team leader. The Air Force is transitioning all three CRFs down to one at Robins AFB, Ga, states the release. The other CRFs are currently located at Hill AFB, Utah, and RAF Lakenheath, England.
