Ruptured Duck Artwork Unveiling Ceremony

Dawn Thatcher, wife of the late Doolittle Raider Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, pours three fingers of Hennessey on the landing gears of the Ruptured Duck B-1 Aircraft, as part of a ceremony for the new Ruptured Duck artwork, Apr. 17, 2017 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The pouring of the most elite of fluids is a long held superstition, which is said to provide a safe flight for those that serve on the aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo / Wesley Farnsworth)
