Flags fly over ASTF

Recent Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) retirees Rosemary Matty and Jerry Kitchens received U.S. flags that were flown over the Complex’s Aeropropulsion Systems Test Facility (ASTF), for turbine engine testing, as part of their retirement. Matty and Kitchens worked on systems sustainment projects in ASTF where a crane is currently in place for the facilities exhaust system. The flags were suspended from the crane. Matty, previously an AEDC Advanced Large Military Engine Capability (ALMEC) program manager, retired with 33 years of service at AEDC. Kitchens was an AEDC Aeropropulsion Sustainment Branch director and retired with 37 years of service. (Photos by Rick Goodfriend)
