The 43rd Electronic Combat Squadron hosted nine-year-old Dana Morgan as an honorary Pilot for a Day here March 14.

Dana smiles after a ride in a fire truck with Airman 1st Class Joshua Scully, 355th Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter. Pilot for a Day is a program which allows children, who have serious or chronic conditions, and their families with the opportunity to be a guest of the 355th Fighter Wing and one of D-M’s squadrons for the day.

Tech. Sgt. Cole Reinbold, 43rd Electronic Combat Squadron, shows Dana preflight procedures inside the cockpit of an EC-130H Compass Call. Morgan visited the base for a Pilot for a Day tour which included viewing the firehouse, an EC-130H and flying an HC-130J Simulator.

Dana sports a fake mustache in recognition of “Mustache March” during her Pilot for a Day tour. Each honorary pilot leaves D-M with patches, souvenirs and memories to help sustain them in the face of their personal challenges.

Capt. Bryan Kapes, 43rd Electronic Combat Squadron, instructs Dana inside an HC-130J Simulator. Dana and her family were escorted by Kapes, whose unit hosted the Pilot for a Day tour.
