Prepping to Retire SAM Fox History

Senior Master Sgt. Thomas Morgera, of the 89th Maintenance Group, runs preflight checks on a former 89th Airlift Wing C-9 Nightingale, which has not flown since 2005, at Joint Base Andrews, Md., May 20, 2016. Morgera is overseeing the efforts to get the C-9 flight ready, so it can be flown by its new owner from the base.
