While I was stationed at England AFB, LA, from 1989 to 1992 with the 76th TFS Vanguards, I was lucky enough to be assigned this jet with my crew chiefs SSgt Robert Summers and SSgt Jeff Ard. I flew my jet when we deployed in August of 1990 to Operation Desert Shield. On February 2nd 1991 I was shot down over Kuwait in aircraft 80-0248, the first combat loss of an A-10. Due to the circumstances of my shoot down I was presumed dead, but always listed as MIA. Obviously I survived. My squadron commander, LtCol Gene Renuart, had my name removed from the jet so pilots flying it wouldn't be reminded of me. At the urging of the remaining three of my fellow flight commanders my name was put back on my jet before the war ended. After my release from prison I returned back to England AFB and my first flight was in my jet, 79-0198.
