Alaska’s newest state Senate nominee is a former F-22 fighter pilot

JUNEAU — Alaska Gov. Bill Walker, in his third attempt to fill a Mat-Su state Senate seat, on Tuesday appointed a former Air Force fighter pilot who now flies for FedEx.

Walker announced he'd picked Mike Shower of Wasilla to fill the seat formerly held by Mike Dunleavy, the Wasilla Republican who resigned last month to run for governor...

Shower worked for two decades as a pilot in the Air Force and held the rank of lieutenant colonel.

He commanded the first squadron of F-22s at Elmendorf Air Force Base; his call sign was "Dozer," and in 1999 he shot down a Yugoslavian Mig-29 fighter jet.
