June 12: KC-135 Tanker Pilot Crystal Seeman will speak at the Hoosier Air Museum at 7PM on Monday, June 12.
Crystal (Nix) Seeman was born and raised in Angola, IN, and is a 2004 graduate of Angola High School. After graduation she joined the 122nd Fighter Wing, Indiana Air National Guard, located at Fort Wayne International Airport.
Crystal continued her college education at IPFW and Purdue University while she continued with the 122nd Fighter Wing in Fort Wayne.
After 4 years of college while in the Air Guard, it was time to move on to bigger and better things! Crystal applied for and was hired as a refueling tanker boom operator at Grissom Air Reserve Base in Peru Indiana. She completed training and immediately went operational on her first deployment.
After completing that first deployment, Crystal continued to deploy and also to continue her education for the next 2 years. She was awarded her Bachelors Degree in the summer of 2011, and finished the year completing two more deployments.
With 5 deployments completed and almost 7 years as a boom operator, she decided again it was time for another move.
She was hired in March of 2014 to become a pilot of the KC-135 refueling tankers for the 72nd Air Refueling Squadron at Grissom Air Force Base.
Crystal married David Seeman in September 2014 and left for pilot training 2 weeks later. She completed pilot training as a member of class 16-08 in April 2016, completed KC-135 school in October, and has since been operational as a KC-135 pilot with the 72nd Air Refueling Squadron.
Crystal will discuss the interesting progression of her career, including her experience as a refueling boom operator, and now as a KC-135 Pilot, at the Hoosier Air Museum at 7PM on Monday, June 12.
You are invited to join us at the Hoosier Air Museum at 7PM on Monday, June 12, for this interesting presentation.
