ABSTRACT
The article informs that determining the life left in an aging aircraft demands new tactics and tools. Remaining questions about the structural health of U.S. firefighting airtankers is prompting the creation of a new center dedicated to researching and finding solutions for aging-aircraft problems. A consortium combining the expertise and resources of NASA, academia, the U.S. Forest Service and private companies will build the center around the concept of condition-based maintenance.
