The Horton family means so much to so many at this base, so I was honored when Heather asked me to document Colonel Horton's last flight in the f-16. We were able to walk him out to the jet before take off and when I asked what number flight this was he responded with "2,000 something"! Crazy!!! After he landed, he was greeted by the fire department who provided a water arch (that Heather got to initiate) and then the traditional hog tie, spray down (with a fire hose instead of fire extinguishers filled with water), and champagne shower!
Thank you, Horton family, for all that you've done for so many families here in Germany!
