    Penetrant and magnetic particle are the most widely used methods of nondestructive inspection performed during aircraft maintenance. This presentation will discuss briefly U.S. Air Force procedures in determining applications, developing specific techniques, and implementing inspections on a world-wide basis. This will provide the background necessary to understand the problem peculiar in maintaining military aircraft. The objective of this briefing is to describe the difficulties resulting from inadequate equipment/materials/process specifications and standards. General requirements necessary for the resolution of these difficulties will be defined.
