April Monthly Meeting and Elections
Delta Breeze Club

Synopsis

Capt Jim Leli, KC-10 Aircraft Commander from the 6ARS, gave his account of dragging the new F-35B (Marine variant) from Eielson, AK to Japan. In his account he spoke of the many limitations of the new F-35 and his in-flight emergency (inop stabilizer) and how he and his crew handled the emergency and safely landed back in Eielson. After his briefing, flight 5 held elections via the ballot on the news letters and via voice motions as well. Final votes are being tallied and the outcome of the elections will be announced next week.
