Ensuring stability in the sky

TOPEKA (KSNT) – Serving with the Air Force across Korea and Vietnam, Barry Buessing ensured safety and stability for those taking to the skies.


Back in the late 1960’s, Buessing had an important decision to make after high school, join the service or attend more schooling. He ended up doing a bit of both, choosing the branch he did for a couple of key reasons.


“I had a cousin that was in the air force,” Buessing said, “and I just always liked to see planes or watch them in air shows. That’s why if I went into the Air Force I’d like to be an Aircraft Mechanic on fighter jets.”
