Airmen from the 910th Airlift Wing participated in Wings-n-Wheels fly-in and car show, Aug. 5-6, at Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport. Airmen were able to interact with the event participants and answer questions related to the various static displays featured there.

In celebration of the Air Force’s 75th Anniversary, the 910th AW expanded their footprint at the event. The 910th AW displayed a C-130H Hercules aircraft, a security forces patrol car with and law enforcement gear for participants to interact with and two firetrucks. Personnel from munitions and aerial spray also had static displays, and the propulsion shop set up a cut-away C-130H engine in the cargo area of the C-130 static display.

During the event, Col. Michael Maloney, 910th AW commander, spoke to a crowd of participants, highlighting the mission and impact of the Air Force Reserve and Youngstown Air Reserve Station.

“The event gave us the chance to showcase the hometown Air Force to the public and display the visible symbol of the Air Force to the entire region,” said Maloney. “The local community interacting with Airmen allows people to see that these Airmen are your friends and neighbors who are defending this country. Reserve Citizen Airmen mean a lot to me, and we cannot do the job without them.”

Wings-n-Wheels also reflects the dedicated support the local community has for YARS.

“The strength and support of the community is nothing short of amazing,” said Maloney. “I continue to be astonished by the amount of support, it blows me away.”
