I remember many days and nights working on 61-0289. She was named the Duke while I was there, however the head crew chief TSgt Ness and the rest of the crew called her Medusa. We never did get that nose art up. I also spent many hours at Minot and Ellsworth pulling alert on her. I crewed her from 1989-1991. I remember her being a good plane and always hoped that she would end up at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. It would have been a fitting retirement for her.

This aircraft was known as "2ache9" to those of us who maintained it. There was also "2sick2" or 61-0262. It is now on display at the Ellsworth Museum at the main gate. I put in many days/weeks of alert duty on the A models G models and C models. I saw a picture of 62-3570 taken at AMARC and there was very little left of it; mostly just the belly and a bit of the nose. The ladder used to get into the aircraft was leaning up against the forward bulkhead. I had to think to myself; how many times I went up and down that ladder in my carreer at Ellsworth.
