Beale Air Force Base has returned to normal flying operations since Tuesday, where a two-seater U-2 crashed in the Sutter Buttes near the installation. 

The time of 9:01 a.m. was chosen specifically for the 9th Reconnaissance Wing and 1st Reconnaissance Squadron, the unit which Lt. Col. Steve “Shooter” Eadie was assigned to. 

Today’s launch signifies the resiliency of Team Beale and how we move forward.
