Moved to 537 while 479 was deployed, this former DEMO bird was fun to tear into. She stayed behind during our next deployment in '09.

This was my Baby!!! I was assigned to her just before our deployment to Balad in '09. She had a rough go at first with a FMC rate of 31% after the first month and a half.... but after a start problem was diagnosed to the PTO speed sensor, which led to the helicoil comming out of the ADG upon removal of said sensor, and subsequent ADG R&I she came out of her 2nd cann status running like a Champ and before ya knew it she was up to a 99% FMC rate before deployments end. She was also part of our first drop of the deployment!!!!!
