Apr 24, 2017
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Rock Springs-area residents can crawl around a Wyoming Air National Guard C-130 Thursday morning, while it’s parked at the Rock Springs Sweetwater County Airport from 10 a.m. – noon.
The C-130, one of eight assigned to the 153rd Airlift Wing, in Cheyenne, is landing at Rock Springs as part of a statewide outreach to educate Wyoming residents on the benefits, capabilities, missions and opportunities available in the Wyoming Air National Guard.
“We wanted to bring the Wyoming Air National Guard to Wyoming residents,” said Master Sgt. Chandra Gillott, recruiting and retention manager. “We fly all over Wyoming skies, but it’s not often we can spend time on the ground to allow people to interact with us.”
To access the C-130 at the airport follow signs for the General Aviation side of the airport. Gate access to the C-130 is located at the public parking area. Cameras are allowed. C-130 crewmembers and recruiters will be available to answer questions.
