‘Adopt a Plane Program’ takes off
Ryan Ahrenstorff, an eagle scout with Troop 72 from Rapid City, and Master Sgt. Mark Wight, the curator assigned to the South Dakota Air and Space Museum, position a sign in front of an F-100A Super Sabre static display as part of the Adopt-A-Plane Program in Box Elder, S.D., Sept. 23, 2017. Multiple units from Ellsworth Air Force Base and private organizations around the area are adopting aircraft and taking them on as their own by washing, bird proofing and performing minor upkeep.
