Ayden Houston and Maj. Richard Stocker fly a C-130 Hercules flight simulator, the Multi-Mission Crew Trainer, after Ayden was named an honorary "pilot for a day," Sept. 15, 2019, at the 179th Airlift Wing at Mansfield Lahm Air National Guard Base, Mansfield, Ohio. The 164th Airlift Squadron collaborated with “A Special Wish Foundation” of Cleveland to provide Ayden with this unique experience he could share with his family who have been battling a variety of health issues with Ayden since birth.
