Crew Chief Profile
10th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Fighting Tenth" , 1985 - 1988
I was the very first crew chief assigned to her; she had 18 hours on the airframe with a new jet smell. Pilot was Capt. Craig "Skip" Wilkerson and the nose art was Skipso V after his Grandfather who flew I-IV. I rec'd a back seat ride in 84-1331, talk about a great ride; we pulled 8.1-8.9 G's 6 times before we hit 9.3 G's flying over spain and logging a 1.2 mission. Thanks 1st Lt. Clint "Weed Hopper" Bennet for the awesome ride. Skip was the first officer to reenlist me; what an outstanding and personable guy. Thanks Skip for being my friend.
