Started crewing the F-16 in 2004 in the Indiana Air National Guard. Been with the Blacksnakes now ever since then. Awesome aircraft and enjoy it thoroughly. Also have A&P licsence to work on aircraft and put it to use in April 2007 working at Pinnacle Airlines (Northwest Airlink) doing maintenance on Canadair Regional Jets. Love working and maintaining aircraft.

Current or Favourite assignment

I am a friend and family person, so it was hard to abandon everyone. So I opted to stay around and join the Air National Guard that way I could still work on the Falcon, even though it is not going to be around much longer. I love the F-16 a lot, and hate to see it go, though we all know an aircraft always gets old and retirement is inevitable. Glad I was able to work on it while I have the opportunity.
