10,000th sortie aircraft flight takes off from Remote Sensing Lab


The Nevada Site Office and contractor National Security Technologies recently celebrated the 10,000th sortie aircraft flight from their Remote Sensing Lab (RSL) in southern Nevada in support of Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) missions.  Participating in the commemorative flight were: (l-r): NNSS Fire & Rescue (F&R) Deputy Chief of Operations John Gamby, Chief Charles Fauerbach, NSTec Chief Operating Officer Mike Butchko, Capt. Tom McKissack, F&R Engineer John Dwyer, RSL pilot Capt. Tom Selfridge and F&R Training Deputy Chief John Rynes. The commemorative flight from RSL’s location at Nellis Air Force Base to the Desert Rock Airport at the NNSS was similar to those flown during local wildland fire events at the NNSS.
