Team Dover’s maintenance groups hosted an airplane Nose Art Unveiling Ceremony March 22, 2018, at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware.

The nose artwork, titled “Keep ‘em Flying” by renowned artist Greg Hildebrandt, was placed on a Team Dover C-17 Globemaster III cargo plane and will be a permanent fixture to the aircraft.

The piece depicts a Rosie the Riveter-like lady maintainer rolling up her sleeves while holding a wrench, ready to keep ‘em flying. The piece pays tribute to past, present and future dedicated female maintainers, whose tireless efforts and confident professionalism continue to ensure mission readiness across the Air Force.
