  • Taking Family on the Flight Line to a New Level

    The T-6 Texan II launches more than 150 times per day at Laughlin, but Tuesday’s launch was pretty special, as more than 25 maintainers stopped what they were doing to watch a lieutenant take to the skies in a military aircraft for the first time. Tuesday morning, 2nd Lt. Mark Gonzalez, a student pilot and Del Rio native, completed his dollar ride. A dollar ride is the first ride in a military aircraft a student pilot takes when beginning Undergraduate Student Pilot Training. Gonzalez completed his first flight with Maj. Jesus Beltran, a Laughlin instructor pilot and fellow Del Rio native. The tandem’s crew chief was Benjamin Gonzalez, a T-6 Phase Dock Supervisor in the 47th Maintenance Directorate and Mark’s own father at home.
