I was the crew chief, with John Duke as my assistant, on the aircraft when we flew in to Grissom that day. Number 3 engine was shutdown due to a faulty oil pressure transmitter. Once all the ceremonial things were taken care of, and the passengers welcomed home by their families, we repaired the oil pressure transmitter and got "Mimi" ready for the flight home to Castle AFB, CA that next day.

This baby brought me home to my family during Desert Storm from Greece to Grissom AFB. My kids thought it was pretty cool to have the fire trucks follow us in, but few knew we were IFE with #3 shut down in flight

Crew this waterburner for just over two years (90-92) at Castle AFB, CA which was its' final home before going to the boneyard. Barely 14,000 hours and the best A-model I ever had the pleasure of working on. "Gleaming Mimi" showed me the world during Desert Shield/Storm and I never, ever, had a doubt as to how great this tanker truly was! Thanks to John Duke and Mike Kulaga, the best assistant crew chiefs a guy could ever ask for!
