During my time with the 191St Fig I worked in maintenance control. During the day shift we would have two controller, Maintenance control specialist in the Delta One van and a Plans and Scheduler. Sometime additional personnel would be assigned because some injury. WE would decide what planes would be on the flight schedule for that day. Additionally put aircraft on rotation to our alert Det in Seymour Johnson for air defense. Along with the Alert aircraft for our sector that include Detroit. After every flight we would review the flight records for miniatous problems that would dictate the flying status of the aircraft.
This where the name the puzzle palace into play. A lot of time the flight line and the maintenance shops would not agree with our plans of action. All decision and actions would have been blessed or okay by the Maintenance officer Skip Kimberly.
