Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas —

The 433rd Airlift Wing recently hosted about 65 members from the National Corvette Restorers Society here at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, July 13, 2017.

These Corvette enthusiasts, who come from all over the United States, were in town for their national convention but wanted to make a quick stop at the Alamo Wing.

The tour began with a C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft tour, followed by a visit to the 341st Training Squadron, and a self-guided tour of the United States Air Force Airman Heritage Museum and Enlisted Character Development Center.

During the C-5 tour members had the chance to walk through cargo hold, troop compartment and flight deck.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the C-5 tour. Being able to get into the cockpit was really cool," said Jonna Clark, a NCRS member. "My husband was an Army guy so this Air Force museum tour to me is very interesting."

While at the 341st TRS, the group got to witness a Military Working Dog controlled aggression demonstration.

The last stop was a self-guided tour of the United States Air Force Airman Heritage Museum and Enlisted Character Development Center. Here, members got a chance to see the evolution of the Air Force and the history of basic military training.

Brad Hudson, a NCRS member form Chicago, Ill., enjoyed visiting the 341st TRS.

"I liked watching the dog demonstration. I thought it was interesting because you don't see that in the Air Force, " said Hudson. "I also thought the C-5 tour was marvelous. When I saw it, I was overwhelmed at how large it really is."
