Tweet’s Days Ending at Columbus:

The day is drawing closer when there will be no more T-37 Tweets flying at Columbus AFB, Miss. The Mississippi flying training base’s 41st Flying Training Squadron last week flew its final Tweet sortie, reports A1C Danielle Powell. From now on, the 41st FTS will fly only the new T-6 Texan II trainer. As did the T-37 force at Randolph AFB, Tex., earlier this year, Columbus enlisted noted aviation artist Keith Ferris to produce a Columbus Tweet painting, which now adorns a wall in the squadron’s heritage room. The unit’s sister squadron, the 37th FTS will fly Tweets through March 2008.
