A jack screw helps hold a B-52H Stratofortress fin in place on Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Oct. 2. The jack screw is used to raise and lower the 2,600 pound fin by hand. For every 10 rotations the screw moves one thread. Raising or lowering the fin can take four to eight hours. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Micaiah Anthony)(RELEASED)
