JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md. -- With the 1,900 horsepower Wright R-2600-20 Cyclone engine coming to life, Mr. Mark Allen, from Houston, TX., prepares the last flying example of a Navy Curtis-Wright SB2C Helldiver in the world before taking off Joint Base Andrews after completion of the Joint Service Open House. The aircraft, owned by the Commemorative Air Force, flies around the U.S. to promote the history of this aircraft and rich history of the U.S. Navy. This is the first Joint Service Open House conducted by Team Andrews members at the newly minted Joint Base Andrews, continuing a rich tradition of partnership and strength rooted in service to the nation.
