The Panavia Tornado GR1 is the aircraft of the day! The aircraft on display flew with the RAF&#39;s 17 Squadron from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, where it sported desert camouflage and the name Miss Behavin&#39;. The aircraft is currently painted as an aircraft assigned to 617 Squadron. It came to the museum in October 2002 as a donation from the RAF.

Info here: Aug. 30-Sept.1 During this three-day event visitors will see some of history’s well-known airframes at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force over Labor Day weekend, but they won’t just be the ones inside the galleries. Scale versions of those aircraft will fly over the museum, regaling spectators with daring aerobatics. RC pilots will entertain audiences as they perform skillful maneuvers with jets, warbirds and helicopters from all eras of aviation history.
On this day in 1967, on his 26th Misty FAC mission, Bud Day was shot down by ground fire over North Vietnam. During the ejection, Day's right arm was broken in three places, along with other injuries. His crewman was quickly picked up by a rescue helicopter, but Day was captured by local militia, beaten and tortured. A veteran of three wars and the first commander of the Misty FACs, Col. George "Bud" Day is one of the most highly-decorated Airmen in USAF history. Info here: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
The North American F-82B Twin Mustang is the aircraft of the day! Of a total of 273 F-82s produced, 20 were F-82Bs. The F-82B on display, Betty-Jo, flew from Hawaii to New York on Feb. 27-28, 1947, a distance of 5,051 miles, the longest non-stop flight ever made by a propeller-driven fighter at that time. Betty-Jo came to the museum in 1957. Info here: #avgeek #airhistory #aviation" target="_blank"> #avgeek #airhistory #aviation</a>
On this day in 1954, Capt. Joseph McConnell Jr. crashed to his death while testing an F-86H at Edwards AFB, Calif. Learn about his 16 aerial victories during the Korean War. Info: #Ace #TripleAce" target="_blank"> #Ace #TripleAce</a>
The Republic RF-84K Thunderflash is the aircraft of the day! The RF-84K was a reconnaissance and nuclear strike fighter that was intended to be carried toward a target as a "parasite" underneath the GRB-36 bomber. At the time, jet aircraft possessed relatively short range and aerial refueling was not yet proven, so this provided a method to extend their range.

Check out this Northrop P-61 photo taken on this day in 1944.
The Teledyne-Ryan AQM-91A Compass Arrow is the aircraft of the day! This high-flying, unmanned photo reconnaissance aircraft is an early example of stealth technology. Lessons learned from its development contributed to later stealth fighters, bombers and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Vertol CH-21B Workhorse is the aircraft of the day! Originally called the "flying banana," the H-21 served with the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army, the French navy, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the West German Air Force. The museum obtained the CH-21B on display from Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., in January 1965. Info here: #avgeek #airhistory #aviation" target="_blank"> #avgeek #airhistory #aviation</a>
The C-130 was originally designed as an assault transport capable of operating from unpaved, hastily prepared airstrips. On Aug. 23, 1954, the Hercules made its first flight. By 1976 more than 1,200 C-130s had been ordered, including aircraft equipped for radar weather mapping and reconnaissance, mid-air space capsule recovery, search and rescue, ambulance service, drone launching, and mid-air refueling of helicopters. Info:
A memorial dedicated to the fallen from the now-deactivated 603rd Air Control Squadron, Aviano Air Base, Italy, was unveiled today at the National Museum of the Air Force. Here are some photos from the memorial dedication. Aviano Air Base
The Boeing YCGM-121B Seek Spinner is the aircraft of the day! It is an unmanned aerial vehicle designed to seek out and attack the radars that control enemy anti-aircraft artillery or surface-to-air missile defenses. (Some radar antennas rotate or spin, hence the name "Seek Spinner.") Info here: #avgeek #airhistory #aviation" target="_blank"> #avgeek #airhistory #aviation</a>
Brazil entered WWII on Aug. 22, 1942, after German submarines sank several of its merchant ships in the Atlantic Ocean. For&#231;a A&#233;rea Brasileira (FAB) aircrews had already begun training with U.S. personnel and conducting antisubmarine flights off the coast of Brazil. By the end of 1944, this important mission was the sole responsibility of FAB aircrews flying U.S.-supplied aircraft. Info:

#ArmyMedicine history: Today in 1964, Maj. Charles Kelly was killed in Vietnam, and his call sign would be adopted for all medevac flights: DUSTOFF.

In an ongoing effort to receive health care feedback from military treatment facilities, Defense Health Agency (DHA) Director, Vice Adm. Raquel C. Bono, visited Madigan Army Medical Center today to discuss The DHA&#39;s evolving role in military medicine, #MHSGENESIS, and much more with Madigan&#39;s staff. When asked what our valued patients can expect to see as far as changes with DHA’s involvement with Army Medicine, Vice Adm. Bono said: “I think that what the patients can expect to see is they’re going to maintain a very high level of care. I don’t see any need to do anything where things are working really well for our patients, but I would be interested in finding out if there are some things that DHA and Army Medicine can help move things in a way that is even more responsive because I think the experience of care that the patients have had here in the Pacific Northwest and certainly at Madigan is a very high level. I’m interested from a DHA perspective in what can I do to continue to support that, augment it and keep it moving forward.” The DHA Director&#39;s message for our patients was clear: “We’re here for them. This is our whole reason for being here. This is their healthcare plan, this is their health services, and I’m very interested in continuing to support them in the fullest way possible,” said Vice Adm. Bono. -Stay tuned for more from Vice Adm. Bono&#39;s visit to #Madigan!

On June 27, Medal of Honor recipient retired Master Sgt. Leroy Petry encouraged a packed audience at Madigan Army Medical Center at Joint Base Lewis-McChord to "take a knee" when they need to focus on their behavioral health. Petry, the first Medal of Honor recipient to formally sponsor a behavioral health program, focused on encouraging service members and veterans to recognize their own behavioral health needs, to support each other, and to get help when needed. "We&#39;re never alone. There&#39;s always somebody there beside us," Petry said.
