Capt. Cory Bota, KC-135 pilot with the 914th Air Refueling Wing, was an enlisted aircraft maintainer before he became a pilot in the Air Force Reserve. The former fuel cell systems specialist earned his degree from Ohio State University and then became an officer. 'Mustang' is the term for officers who previously served as enlisted personnel.
