Serious non-political question that I’m guessing you know something about.  I have a family from my Boy Scout Troop that had a boy make Eagle last year just before he turned 18 and joined the Air Force.  When he leaves BMTS he will go to school with an AFSC called non-destructive inspection.  I believe the slang is NDI.  The parents are good friends and I told them I know someone that might offer some insights.  Since you are a flyer, I’m guessing this is a meaningful job for you. From what I’ve read it looks like a lot of lab work.  What’s your take on this AFSC?

Thanks

In the maintenance career field…he will likely be working backshop on a flightline somewhere inspecting the aircraft for weaknesses in the airframes. That is most of what I know about it. I am sure there is a lot more to the job but that is the big picture.
