Walking Airman

The Walking Airman

The photo of the walking airman at left as well as shown on the Homepage is actually titled 'Upstairs, Last On The Right' and it depicts an airman on return from a flying mission walking to his transit accommodation. The photo, which hangs proudly in the Officers' Mess at Altus AFB, Oklahoma, was taken many years ago at the base transit quarters. As one would probably remembers only too well from one's flying days, when, with a stack of baggage, the least transit room you wanted but always managed to get was upstairs and at the end of the corridor, hence the name.

Photo and narrative provided by Warrant Officer Darrell Bent, 33 Squadron.
