A 10,000 Hour Love Affair

U.S. Air Force Col. Bruce Gootee, 307th Bomb Wing navigator and Lt. Col. Steve Smith, 93rd Bomb Squadron flight instructor, review a map during an early morning mission briefing at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., March 3, 2017. The routine training mission took on great significance as it put Smith over 10,000 flight hours in the B-52 Stratofortress, a feat not accomplished in more than 30 years.
