On the first work day back from New Year's Day, two planes were towed into position on the flight line for inspection.  

Executing the 2020 mission: The 932nd Airlift Wing's Maintenance Group (MXG), is responsible for leading people who train and equip Airmen to inspect, maintain and repair Air Force Reserve Command C-40C planes at Scott Air Force Base. The 932nd MXG's management of resources improves the wing's professionalism and enables the 932nd Operations Group's C-40C aircraft to fly distinguished visitor (DV) airlift around the world, anywhere they are needed by the nation's leaders.
