I lived in a small town of Bethalto in IL. When Scott's runway closed the ac would land at our little airport. I remember seeing the C9 and telling my family, "someday I am going to fly on one of those." Years later, I joined the USAF and was stationed at Yokota as a flt nurse. The C9 was my first aircraft. There is nothing like flying on a Nightingale. This was our plane. I also stood proudly in my blues for the retirement of the aircraft..... a sad day. What I wouldn't give for the opportunity to step on one again, to joke with the Pilots, watch the techs do the demos, bake cookies in the oven, tease the newbies about radar checks, and Naas make her breakfast casserole. When you flew on a C9 whether you were a Nurse, Tech, Pilot, or Crew Chief, it was your aircraft and you had a sense of pride flying on it. We were family.

I was the assistant crew chief on 874 from Jan 97 thru July 98 and then I became the Dedicated Crew Chief from Juy 98 until I PCSd from Yokota in Feb 2001. I also want to mention I had an outstanding assistant crew chief in SrA Adam Moody. This was the best flying airplane at the time I was there. It was a sad day when the Air Force decided to retire the C-9. I was also a Flying Crew Chief with the 30th Airlift Squadron and put in over 600 flying hours on the C-9. It was definitely the way to get around the Pacific.
