Crew Chief Profile
170th Fighter Squadron "Fly'N Illini" , 1994 - 1996
I crewed this aircraft while assigned to the 183 FW, Illinois Air National Guard from 1995 to 1996 when I left the unit. In late August 2008, 87-320 came to the 150th FW, New Mexico ANG. I was a member there and got to crew it again a couple of times. What's the odds of that happening?
