This article presents information regarding the stress of F-16 avionics technician, Shelly Barton. A step away from her nightstand, the light in her room flickered, stopping her in her tracks. She couldn't explain it, but she could feel the pressure in her room change, as if someone had taken a giant vacuum and was sucking all the air out. Then the building swayed. An earthquake? she wondered. The light turned to almost a greenish haze, and suddenly, the pressure changed again, like a balloon popping.
