Two merged photographs present Marcus Foiles and retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Gregg Montijo in an A-10 flight simulator during a tour at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., Jan. 27, 2017 (left), and July 1989 (right). Foiles was 10 years old in 1989 when he was granted a trip to D-M via the Make-A-Wish Foundation after being diagnosed with leukemia. Foiles made the trip back to D-M to reconnect with Montijo, the pilot who hosted the tour 28 years ago. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Airman 1st Class Nathan H. Barbour) Second chance to fly: Pilot, cancer survivor reunite after 28 years
Marcus Foiles beamed with excitement as he piloted an A-10 in the skies over a virtual southern Arizona landscape. Foiles had been in a flight simulator before, but today was a whole new experience. The odds of him sitting where he was at that moment in time were immeasurable. The last time Foiles held the simulator’s control stick was when he was 10 years old, after being diagnosed with leukemia. Davis-Monthan rolled out the red carpet for the young boy from Springfield, Illinois, who was granted a tour of the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center with sponsorship from the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
