Glad to be back in Alaska, well at least at Elmo! This acft is very interesting to work. My acft is 06-130, brand spankin' new. It's a crew chief dream, so maintenance friendly compared to 16's. Only crewed for a year then was hired at QA and finished my time there.

Being an Assistant Section Chief is a rewarding job but at the same time it's like herding cats.
Unit 457th Fighter Squadron "Spads" [History]
Period 2014 - 2015
Assistant Section Chief for 301 AMXS/355 FS. Being part of a TFI base is quite different but does open my eyes to see how the reserve side of the house operates.
