DCC: Wonderful jet. After I inherited it, she went to Phase, Depot and sat Alert for several long periods. She went TDY several times, as did I, though never together. Only major recurrent problem was with the FCC. Otherwise was basically a Code 1 jet. My last memories are of her being torn apart for CANN and time changes as I leave for OTS/UPT.

Never have I worked harder to keep a jet in the air. Did good until both leading edge flaps fractured during BIT check on an extremely cold day 2 days before Christmas. Engineering rep attributed it to residual stress in the flaps. Took 3 months to get new LEF's. In the mean time she was raped bad. Me and Brad got her back in the air in a week when the new parts arrived though, raping the next can jet in the meantime. She also flew code 1 the first flight!

Not a bad aircraft considering she had a new owner every year... :-)
