Oklahoma Air National Guard -- Members of the 138th Fighter Wing Chiefs Council spear headed an effort to clean the vintage aircraft on display at the Oklahoma Air National Guard base in Tulsa Okla., 29 July 2014.

Chief Master Sergeants from around the installation, along with Lieutenant Colonel Travis Brown, 138th Maintenance Squadron Commander, power washed and hand scrubbed all four of the display aircraft.

"We do this in recognition of those who served this wing before us. We as Chiefs felt that some TLC towards the heritage fighter aircraft was due. After all, it was the 138th members before us that paved the way for our future and success", stated Chief Master Sgt. Brian Williams, 138th Maintenance Group Chief, and project coordinator.

The aircraft cleaning precedes a gathering of the Oklahoma Air National Guard's F-100 Sabre Society, which will reunite onĀ 2 August 2014. Attendees will include former Director of the Air National Guard and 138th Fighter Wing Commander, Lieutenant General Harry M. "Bud" Wyatt III.

Over the years, the 138th has flown four different fighter aircraft; The F86 Sabre, F-100 Super Sabre, A-7 Corsair, and currently the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
