Keldon Johnson, a member of the San Antonio Spurs basketball team, visited the 433rd Airlift Wing at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland March 2 to meet Reserve Citizen Airmen and learn the capabilities and missions of the C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft.

During his tour, Johnson received and wore an Air Force aircrew flight jacket, met 433rd AW Commander Col. Terry McClain, and piloted a C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft simulator.

Col. James Miller, 433rd Operations Group commander, guided Johnson’s experience in the flight simulator.

“We loved having Keldon Johnson come visit us,” Miller said. “It raised our Airmen’s morale and also gave us a chance to showcase the C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft. Highlighting our mission to the local community is always a pleasure, because we are always ready.”

Afterwards, Johnson went to the flight line to tour a C-5M aircraft and to sign autographs for Reserve Citizen Airmen and their families.

“We did appreciate Keldon taking time out of his busy schedule to visit our amazing team,” Miller said. “Based on his experience with the Alamo Wing team, I know he will be a huge champion for the Alamo Wing both on and off the court.”
