Veteran Warrant Officer Takes Final Flight

veteranA New York Army National Guard C12 aircraft, piloted by Chief Warrant Officer 5 Robert Wold, taxis through a rainbow at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Latham, N.Y. on Dec. 21. The rainbow formed as Wold — a master Army aviator with over 5,400 flight hours in numerous aircraft — completed his traditional military “final flight” and taxied the aircraft through jets of water sprayed by Albany Airport crash trucks. Wold, a Ballston Lake resident and a veteran of the Iraq War, retires in January after 40 years of military service.
