I got this jet when I got back from Korea. I had prior experience with her and didn't like her. She was assigned to me tore apart and sold back in peices by phase and was having the stab box rebuilt by depot. I've rebuilt her and she still likes to break, but all this time I've spent working on her has made her grow on me. I love to hate her. She was picked to be the 53rd wing aircraft by Col. Gantt in June 2009. Keeps breaking, but I've been there to fix her and I've assembled a good crew to keep her flying high. Tough jet to crew, but what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

Pretty new jet. It never gave me problems. Took it to phase and the left stab box was corroded. I guess that didn't turn out too well, Harp. Stab bearing changes were a nightmare after that TCTO dropped.
