Larry Mergili, an L3 Communications site manager attached to the 445th Flight Test Squadron, checks the undercarriage of a C-12C Huron, tail number 31215, after arriving from its aircraft condition inspection from San Angelo, Texas, on June 20. This specific C-12C was out for more than a year due to damage it incurred from a heavy hailstorm while undergoing its ACI. While in San Angelo, the aircraft underwent repairs on the exterior of the aircraft and received new mods in order to return as a test asset at Edwards.
