MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kan. -- Love and life can take two people on incredible adventures and to feelings of new heights while forging a heritage with one another, especially when the two are pilots.
For Maj. Matthew Jones and Capt. Chrystina Jones, love found them as C-130 Hercules pilots and, over the years, gave them a different set of wings as KC-135 Stratotanker pilots and even added two more to their aircrew, their son and daughter.
The couple are relatively new to the KC-135, qualifying 14 months ago. Although a different mission brought them together, Matt relates his past and present with his wife and the tanker as it approaches its 60-year anniversary of its first flight.
