Throwback Thursday: Does anyone remember this cold snap back in 1982? Here's the original story and photo as published in the 910 Flyer. Mother Nature grounds 910th By MSgt. Gary Amato 910 Flyer Staff Writer Sunday, Jan. 17, 1982, will be a day members of the 910th will long remember. For many, their mission became one of attempting to start frozen cars. Everyone who was here for the UTA only had to look out the window at all of the lifted car hoods to realize something was amiss. I happened to be one of those unfortunates out in the record 17-below­ zero temperature trying to get my vehicle started. With the wind chill factor offi­cially recorded at minus 60, there's not much anyone can do to stay warm. Official estimates put the number of frozen engines between 100 and 120. Two cases of frostbite were treated at the clinic, but neither was serious. The call for help went out at 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning. During the course of the day a total of 27 people, 14 portable heaters and nobody knows how many private vehicles were put to use trying to coax unwilling machinery back to life. Personnel from the motor pool, AGE shop, CE and the engine shop braved the ele­ments in the effort to get things moving again. I had made the foolish mistake of teas­ing someone else in the club Saturday night about his car not starting. Never again - I've learned my lesson. It took 30 minutes with a heater going full blast under my hood to thaw my engine out. I know of one person who came back from Pennsylvania the following Thursday to get his car running again. It was the first time in my life, I've ever seen such a thing firsthand and I hope it's the last. Officially, those people who were doing the work out in the cold toiled from 5:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Personnel from the motor pool were: MSgt. James R. Bennett, SSgt. John Kresen, Amn. Tony Rubino, TSgt. Willie Woodford, TSgt. Garland Dunkle, SSgt. Allen Smith, Sgt. John Grande, Mr. Rick Allen and Mr. Tom Blake. AGE Shop Personnel were: MSgt. Ken Fenton, TSgt. Buz Payne, TSgt. Robert Redig, SSgt. Ken Ahlquist, Sgt. Charles Maze, SrA. Gene Cruso and SSgt. Gerry Gallo . CE Squadron sent out SMSgt. John R. Overly, TSgt. Charlie Houtz, TSgt. Myron Overly, Sgt. Freddie Davis, TSgt. Harvey Martin and SSgt. Brad Geiser. SMSgt. Eugene Albani, A 1C William Lobl, MSgt. Joseph Hollabaugh and SSgt. Samuel Soto from the engine shop also did their part. These people met the challenge and the 910th was grateful.

Reserve Citizen Airmen from the 910th Airlift Wing helped fulfill a unique request by honoring a U.S. Air Force veteran of World War II here, June 14, 2018. Charles Robert Johnson Jr. contacted the 910th AW public affairs office to ask if a 48-star U.S. flag he'd purchased in honor of his deceased father, Capt. Charles Robert Johnson Sr., could be flown at an Air Force installation and aboard an Air Force aircraft. The special flag, which was standard during WWII, was raised to the top of the Youngstown Air Reserve Station headquarters flagpole on Flag Day, also Johnson Sr.'s birthday, and will be flown aboard a 910th AW C-130H Hercules aircraft before being returned to Johnson Jr.

A 910th Airlift Wing C-130H Hercules makes a series of low passes while dispersing water during an aerial spray course here last week. The 910th's unique aerial spray mission exists to control disease-carrying insects, pest insects, undesirable vegetation and to disperse oil spills in large bodies of water. The annual course provides aerial spray certification for pest management directors from DoD installations, including locations where the 910th has recurring annual missions to control mosquitoes and other disease-transmitting pest insects.
