Crew Chief Profile
64th Aggressor Squadron "Aggressors" , 2010 - 2011
the jet was a guard transfer from Duluth... it was their wing jet... had a BIG YELLOW cartoon bulldog on the tail flash.. it was nice cause you could see it in pattern... bad because it was now part of an aggressor squadron and it kinda sticks out... they were originally gonna paint it black and white.. fitting considering my callsign and i was stoked.. but supervision grew impatient waiting for the approval and had it painted desert.. i was slightly upset.. but more so when i went to pick it up from paint shop.. they didn't let the under coat dry before added the second brown... so the paint sagged under the new brown in waves and gobs.. the paint on top of the wings had already started to crack... and forget the 60 grit sand paper texture.. there were negative footprints on top of the aircraft where they had stepped while the paint was wet and peeled up the paint to primer.. it was also found on the stabs.. ON THE STABS!!! WHO THE F#$% IS STEPPING ON THE STABS?
