Friday photo: first flight after 23 years in the US Air Force

The moment: First flight after 23 year in the US Air Force

The pilot: Eric Krouse (left) with instructor and friend Andrew

The place: Gwinnett County Airport – Briscoe Field, (KLZU), Lawrenceville, GA.

The aircraft: C172

The memory: I have spent 6 years in the US Army and an additional 23 years in the US Air Force, retiring as a Chief Master Sergeant. My years have been spent in and around air bases world-wide, installing airfield systems and radar systems so our great pilots can do their job.  I am now embarking on my Private Pilot License.  My hope is to become an instructor one day and to continue serving Airman.
