Abilene boy becomes Airman for a day

Caleb Sanders, right, watches as Airmen from the 317th Airlift Wing open the back of a C-130J Super Hercules at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, Feb. 28, 2018. Sanders was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, which is a terminal condition with a median survival time of nine months from diagnosis. Members from Dyess gathered to show Sanders and his family different elements of our two-wing base, which included B-1B Lancer and C-130J Super Hercules tours, C-130 simulated flight, and a flight helmet try-on.
