KINGSVILLE - Kingsville and Training Air Wing TWO welcomed 7-year-old Abigail Panknin as 'Pilot For A Day' on Sept. 17.
Abigail is a patient at Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi.
She was joined by her mother, Bel Panknin, and sister, Megan Panknin, for her special day on board the air station.
Abigail was treated to a full schedule during her visit to Naval Air Station Kingsville. She began her day by meeting with her sponsor pilot, Lt. G. Shannon Anderson, then was taken on a tour of the NAS. The sponsoring squadron for the visit was Training Squadron Twenty One (VT-21). NAS Kingsville sponsorship facilities included the Air Operations Department, Fire and Emergency Services, the Ground Training complex and the Paraloft.
Finally, all smiles, Abigail posed for a photo with a Blue Angel.
