C-130 Memorialized For Fallen Pilot

3/23/2007-YOUNGSTOWN AIR RESERVE STATION, Ohio —Members of the 910th Maintenance Squadron's strucural repair and corrosion shops paid tribute to the memory of Major Karl D. Hoerig by stenciling his name on C-130 aircraft 89-9106. In 2004, the 910th Maintenance Group began a tradition of memorializing a fellow 910th assigned Air Force Reservist who passed away by placing their name on the aircraft aboce the crew door and dedicating the next mission in their honor. Aircraft 89-9106 departed on an aerial spray mission to Hill AFB, Utah March 22, 2007. Members of the The 910th Airlift Wing received sad news that a valued wingman and friend, Major Karl D. Hoerig, 43, passed away early last week. U.S. Air Force Photo/Capt. Brent J. Davis
