Lubbock, TX – The Silent Wings Museum invites the public to observe the Air Force Delayed Entry Program hand wash, wax, and buff our C-47, located in front of the Museum; with no machines involved, just old fashioned elbow grease.

The Air Force Delayed Entry Program is an Air Force program under which an individual may enlist in a Reserve or Inactive Component of the United States Air Force and specify a future reporting date for entry into active duty.

Moving to active duty would coincide with availability of training spaces in a particular program or with personal milestones such as High School or College graduation.

Directing the crew are Staff Sgt. Brad Cantrell, Staff Sgt. Nathan Keister, and Staff Sgt. Sonny Rodriquez. The wash will be March 31, 2012 at 9 a.m.

For more information visit the Silent Wings Museum online at www.silentwingsmuseum.com. The Silent Wings Museum is located at 6202 N. I-27 (Exit 9) in Lubbock's old airport terminal.
