Final flight

Col. Mark Ronco gets hit with a stream of water from a firehose held by his daughter after landing from his final A-10 flight in the 442nd Fighter Wing. Colonel Ronco served as an A-10 instructor pilot, flight commander, assistant operations officer, squadron commander, group commander and vice wing commander during his Air Force Reserve career in the wing. The hose down is an Air Force tradition for a pilot's "fini-flight." Colonel Ronco will become the military liaison to the State of Kansas' emergency management office. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj.
