Check Six – 2002: John “Zoomba” Traettino

April 17, 2022

This photograph shows a young John “Zoomba” Traettino. He flew F-15 Eagles with the 199th Fighter Squadron for many years. Zoomba was one of the F-15 pilots that transitioned to the current F-22 Raptors.

He later served at the National Guard Bureau and retired there as a colonel. After his military retirement, we understand he flew for American Airlines. 

Zoomba – definitely a great pilot and person.

Thanks to John “JC” Chun for sharing this photograph. Thanks to Michael “Boss” TiceBraden “Mongo” Sakai and Wayne “Wildman” Wakeman for providing comments.
