MXG chief brings career full circle during one last farewell to 1086
U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Darron Hunter, the 509th Maintenance Group (MXG) superintendent, performs pre-flight checks on a B-2 Spirit and signals to the mission commander that he is clear and free to move to the runway at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., April 24, 2017. During Hunter’s first assignment at Whiteman, he served as the dedicated crew chief (DCC) on the Spirit of Kitty Hawk, tail number 93-1086, from 2000 to 2002, before moving into Quality Assurance and Production for another seven years. In 2015, Hunter returned to the 509th as the MXG superintendent, bringing his career full circle before retiring. For one last farewell, Hunter once more performed the role of the DCC for his old aircraft, "1086." (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Jazmin Smith)
