Maxwell dedicates veteran MH-53 to Air Park

An “old war bird” was dedicated Monday when a ceremony for Air Force Pave Low #69-5785, or 785, was held at Maxwell’s Air Park. The static display at the corner of Ash and Twining Streets commemorates the Airmen who flew the helicopters first assigned to the Air Force in 1970. Retired Chief Master Sgt. Wayne Fisk, a pararescue jumper who flew on 785 many times, told the audience about the aircraft and his association with it. On the right, Lt. Gen. Allen Peck, Air University commander, Brig. Gen. Tom Trask of Air Force Special Operations Command, Col. Kris Beasley, 42nd Air Base Wing commander, and Maj. Brian Roberts, who flew 785 on her last flight, listened to Chief Fisk’s speech.
