Senior Master Sgt. Mark Bernard polishes the C-135E Speckled Trout aircraft before it departs from here Oct. 25 on an executive airlift mission to the Pacific. The white-and-silver Speckled Trout is used primarily for avionics flight testing, but its secondary mission is transporting Air Force senior leaders as they conduct business around the globe. Bernard is the chief enlisted manager for the 412th Flight Test Squadron's Speckled Trout program at Edwards. (Photo by Tech. Sgt. Chris Ball)
