Coming home: Former maintainer returns to 100th MXG after 18 years
Former U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Dan Cinelli poses for a photo from the cockpit of a KC-135 Stratotanker in 1993 on RAF Mildenhall, England. Aircraft tail number 62-3516 was the first KC-135 he was assigned to as a crew chief when stationed at Griffiss Air Force Base, Rome, New York, when it was an “A” model. The jet was re-engined to an “R” model years later, and eventually leased to the French Air Force in the 1990s. During the time when Cinelli worked in the 100th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron isochronal inspection team, the aircraft showed up at RAF Mildenhall ready to receive a one-time isochronal inspection, and he recognized it as his old jet.
