On March 28, Mayor Don Anderson was one of 24 civic leaders who were invited to participate in the McChord Civic Leaders Fly-away tour, courtesy of 62nd Airlift Wing Commander
Col. David Kumashiro.
As part of the 62nd Airlift Wing's tour, the Mayor and other civic leaders got to fly with a C-17 crew to Travis Air Force Base in Northern California for the day. Along the way, they learned about the airlift wing and got an up-close look at how it conducts its mission.
