Open for business

Col. Jay Jensen, Col. Anna Schulte and Hermis Plash cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the Wing's new paint booth. The commanders, Wing and Maintenance Group respectively, congratulated Plash on the fruition of her efforts, which began in 2000, to obtain funding and equipment for a new paint booth. The original paint booth was 27 years old and failed to meet requirements. In September 2010, the equipment was deemed non-operational and forced the Wing's structural shop to go on temporary duty to Duke Field in order to accomplish the required painting of landing gear rims, break housings, and nose landing gear tow fitting assemblies. The new paint booth not only eliminates the need to travel to Duke Field, it allows the Wing to meet corrosion contral requirements for over 200 pieces of aircraft support equipment.
