Whiteman Air Force Base Has A Kansas City Chiefs Flavor

How often can I start off a post like this: While speaking with Col. Rickey S. Rodgers, Vice Commander of the 509th Bomb Wing...

Not very often. OK, never.

But we spoke with Col. Rodgers regarding the Chiefs visit to Whiteman Air Force Base. He told us there was a healthy amount of folks from the base that were Chiefs fans. He was asked at one point if he and Todd Haley had exchanged ideas regarding the way each runs their crew and, sounding intrigued, he said, "That's a good idea."

Maybe they should exchange ideas because Whiteman Air Force Base already has a Chiefs flavor to it. After the jump I've got an up close picture of the A-10 pictured above. That thing in the engine is what you think it is.
