A Day To Remember At Seymour Johnson AFB (PHOTO GALLERY)

A very special guest gets up close and personal with the planes and pilots at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.

The Air Force base in Goldsboro hosted 12-year-old Dylan Bolles-Prasse of Lancaster, S.C., and his family on Monday as part of the Pilot for a Day program.

Dylan’s father David Prasse says they had a full day at the base on Monday.

Dylan’s day at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base included flying the flight simulator, a tour of an F-15E Strike Eagle, being sworn in to the 334th Fighter Squadron, and the presentation of a flight suit, name badge and squadron patch.

Captain Chris Leonard with the 334th Fighter Squad at Seymour Johnson says it’s hard to tell who has more fun during the day–Dylan or the 334th crew.

Children selected for the Pilot for a Day program come from area children’s hospitals where they’re are battling a chronic or serious condition, including terminal illnesses.
