First jet I was assigned to. My supervisor, TSgt Phelps pulled me aside after roll call one morning and said "See that jet? That is yours. It is the next CANN jet." My response was "What's a CANN jet?" I found out soon enough.
Did the 62 thing again for a year then transfered to QA ,nothing beats the feeling of having your golf cart nice and clean. After that I ended up in the 61 to expedite and asst flt chief oh by the way Brian your in charge of training for the Flt. so get your CBT done!!
The aircraft at Tyndall is likely not 84-1222. I looked at the jet and the airframe is not 84-1222, but the vertical tail is marked as 84-1222. There is a very high possibility that the vertical tail was cannibalized from 84-1222 at AMARG before flying it out to get the QF-16 modification without repainting the tail number. The jet on the ramp at Tyndall has all 61st Topdog markings, and I know for certain that 84-1222 was never in the 61st, only the 62nd Spikes. Pretty cool to see it though.
