Airman's Spotlight: Rusty Thompson

Rusty Thompson, 47th Maintenance Directorate T-38C Talon crew chief, knows what it means to serve, having been in the U.S. Army during the Gulf War and in Somalia, and coming from a family in the service. Now a crew chief for the 47th Maintenance Directorate, he passes on his excitement, expertise and experience to the next generation of multi-domain combat aviators training at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. His mission is to help pilots graduate and prepare them for any inevitable combat roles they may find themselves in. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Senior Airman Daniel Hambor)
