12,000 hours later, engineer takes final flight
Senior Master Sgt. Vince Bartlomain, an evaluator flight engineer with the 757th Airlift Squadron, gets sprayed with water on May 6, 2020, on the flightline at Youngstown Air Reserve Station. Bartlomain had just completed his final flight prior to retiring after more than 30 years in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. For aircrew members, a final flight as a service member is commonly referred to as a “fini flight” and tradition has the individual get hosed down as they exit the aircraft.
