A tank rolls out at Paine Field

The tower at Paine Field got a strange call today. How often does the driver of an M4A1 Sherman tank seek permission to cruise the taxiways and cross a runway?

FHC staffers were bringing back the tank from the paint shop. The newly-restored machine spent a few days parked at SunQuest Air Specialties, Inc. getting its markings. The Sherman will be “Boomerang,” a member of the 7th Armored Division, 31st Battalion — a tank lost in September of 1944 in the Netherlands.
