U.S Air Force Senior Airman George Ruczynski inspects an F-16C Fighting Falcon command jet from the Iowa Air National Guard's 132nd Fighter Wing "Hawkeyes" at the New Jersey Air National Guard's 177th Fighter Wing on Sept. 25 as part of a "bigmouth" conversion. The 177th Fighter Wing's "smallmouth" Block 30 F-16C's are being swapped out for aircraft with the Modular Common Intake Duct, or "bigmouth" air intakes, which lead to greater airflow to the engine and increased performance. Ruczynski is a crew chief assigned to the 177th Maintenance Squadron. The 177th Fighter Wing is located at Atlantic City Air National Guard Base, N.J. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt.
