Crew Chief Profile
614th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Lucky Devils" , 1991 - 1992
After the 613 TFS closed up. I moved over to the 614 TFS. I was there for the remaining 3 months or so until the base finally closed up as we transferred the remaining F-16 Block 30's to Spangdahlem AB, Germany. Who would have known that I would work the exact same Acft once i arrived at Spangdahlem. 614th LUCKY DEVILS
