PETALING JAYA: During a visit to the Airod engine shop on July 9, we encountered several J85 engines undergoing overhaul at the facility. I am assuming that our F5s, especially the Recce variant will be around for a while.
The engine in the picture had undergone testing at the engine bay following a complete repair and overhaul though we did not see the airframe. The MRO of the airframe – if needed – would be conducted at the Butterworth air base where the F5 fleet are based.
