Throwback paint scheme proves heritage is big in the 435th

Rudy Olivarez, a Corrosion Control Specialist in the 12th Maintenance Group, applies paint to the landing gear of a T-38C Talon at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, Jan. 13, 2017. Members of the corrosion control shop are changing the plane’s color scheme from two-tone gray to heritage blue, a scheme that was used by the 435th Fighter Training Squadron 40 years ago, ahead of a reunion of pilots that trained for fighter fundamentals after Jan. 1, 1977.
