KINGSLEY FIELD, Ore. --
A team of explosive ordnance disposal technicians from the 9th Civil Engineer Squadron traveled to Kingsley Field, Oregon and removed a hung flare from an F-15 Eagle Feb. 6.
A hung flare occurs when a flare doesn’t fire like it is supposed to. When this occurs, the flare is considered armed and presents a safety hazard.
