This my assigned aircraft since becoming permanent party in the USAF. As long as I've been in the 309th AMU/FS, I've stayed on this jet although I've been offered to be the DCC (Dedicated Crew Chief) of A3128; our Operational Group jet. I will crew this jet until my last days as a Wild Duck. I've served A3185 as it's ACC and DCC. I am sad to hear that she's been decommissioned and sent off to be laid to rest amongst those who've passed their prime. You were good to me 185. I miss being your DCC.
