You shall not pass: system secures safe stop
A firefighter assigned to the 48th Civil Engineer Squadron observes the exterior of a 494th Fighter Squadron F-15E Strike Eagle after the aircraft encountered a barrier engagement system as part of a certification process on the runway at Royal Air Force Lakenheath, England, Oct. 15, 2014. The cables are strategically placed along the runway to stop aircraft if hydraulic systems or brakes fail. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Erin O’Shea/Released)
