Crew Chief Profile
510th Fighter Squadron "Buzzards" , 2000 - 2001
This aircraft was Special! It had three ACES during the Bosnia Campaigns while still assigned to Ramstein AB, Germany. It became the 31OG Flagship and I was chosen as the DCC. It was my first assignment as a DCC. I could not ask for a better aircraft. It was one of the high-flyers in Allied Force. There is a cool nose-art picture from this jet on the 510 FS webpage. Thanks to all the Aviano guys that taught me so much!!!!!!!!!!

Triple Kill

This bird was first assigned to the 555th FS before going to the 510th, I can't give exact dates but it happened around the time 89-2009 was transferred over. When I first arrived at 555th FS Apr 96 this bird had the blue/gold tail flash, and was still wearing the three kill markings, while 89-2009 wore the 4th.
