Pilot for a day

Thirteen-year-old Wyatt Maurer, tries out a parachute harness and life preserve during his "pilot for a day" experience at the 303rd Fighter Squadron Jan. 11. Wyatt was treated to a ride in the squadron's A-10 Thunderbolt II Flight Simulator, a tour of an actual A-10 and a day in the life of an A-10 pilot. The visit was made possible by the Greater Kansas City chapter of the Dream Factory, which arranges special memories for children with serious or chronic medical conditions. The 303rd is part of the 442nd Fighter Wing, an Air Force Reserve Command unit based at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. David Kurle)
