Air Force Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz gets “hosed down” -- an Air Force tradition -- by his wife Suzie following his last flight as an active-duty officer at Hurlburt Field, Florida, on July 12. He made his “fini flight” aboard a special-ops MC-130E Combat Talon I, where he accumulated many of his 4,400 flying hours. Schwartz will leave his post as the Air Force’s top officer at a retirement ceremony August 10.
