Bagram's Liberty reaches milestone

MC-12 Liberty crew members and leadership from the 4th Expeditionary Reconnaissance Squadron pause for a photo in front of one of their aircraft at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, September 11, 2012. The conclusion of this mission marks a milestone, as it signifies the 4 ERS officially exceeding over 100,000 flying hours using the MC-12s since the unit was stood up in Dec. 2009. 100,000 flying hours roughly equates to 11 and a-half years of flying for one the aircraft. 4 ERS leadership can say they accomplished this feat in under three years using its fleet of MC-12s. The flag in the photo was flown on the first 4 ERS combat mission at Bagram. (U.S. Air Force photo/1st Lt. Marlene Solano)
