Ready for Takeoff(01:54)
Senior Airman Nicole Young inspects a KC-135, a refueling aircraft, inside and out, and then she assists with takeoff. After the plane takes off, Young salutes the aircraft.
Young, who is stationed in Phoenix, is a full-time student at Arizona State University and an aircraft mechanic in the Air National Guard. Members of the Air National Guard are trained to handle the exact same responsibilities as members of the active-duty Air Force.
