Reserve Citizen Airmen with the 433rd Airlift Wing at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland performed a C-5M Super Galaxy flyover during the 50th Annual Special Olympics Texas Summer Games opening ceremony May 3 at Toyota Field.

Brig. Gen. Laura L. Lenderman, 502nd Air Base Wing and JBSA commander, was one of the guest speakers during the opening ceremony.

“The Special Olympics are close to my heart from the past experiences I’ve had with the athletes and their families,” Lenderman said. “I just think it’s symbolic of the bravery of all of us for the young men and women to come out and compete, and no matter what their challenges are, they don’t let anything stop them.”
