Quotes

"Team Target executes that capability flawlessly every day at Tyndall and Holloman, N M , AFBs," Inman said. "This test could not have been accomplished without the unparalleled support of the operations and mission support groups. From the fire and explosive ordnance disposal support, to the airfield management and tower and radar approach control support, to the logistical support, there are countless unrecognized cogs behind the successful mission. We are merely the execution agency that gets to sit at the end of the droneway and bask in the achievement."
"Helping people is something that I love to do," Day said. "If one small thing could set off a chain reaction and multiple people are affected, you've really accomplished something. How much better would our world be?"
—Norman Mineta, former Secretary of Transportation, "Extending NextGen in the Oceans Is Important to the U S " Aviation Daily , July 30, 2014
