As he rolled open his desk drawer to reveal a military patch once worn by his father, Maj. Phillip’s gaze lingered on the 432nd Tactical Fighter Wing emblem in his grasp. His eyes seemed to search for the memories woven between the black and maroon threads before setting it down next to his keyboard. Many families connect through movie nights, snacking on popcorn, rooting for their favorite sports team or singing those ‘80s classics, but this Major’s family founded a tradition within the years they dedicated to the U.S. Air Force.

The MQ-1 served as a premier Remotely Piloted Aircraft for combatant commanders and coalition partners for more than 20 years and is scheduled to officially retire March 9, 2018, at Creech AFB. Sun setting the MQ-1 Predator: MQ-9 Reaper meets demand
With the retirement of the MQ-1 Predator on the horizon, MQ-9 Reapers were successfully transferred via flight from one combat operation to another within the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility for the first time. In January, Airmen facilitated the flight of MQ-9s from Operation Inherent Resolve to Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. This innovative approach took less than 10 percent of the normal time it takes to disassemble, box and ship Remotely Piloted Aircraft via airlift from one theater to another, which allowed warfighters to stay ahead of the pace of modern warfare. As aircrews seamlessly continue to provide dominant, persistent attack and reconnaissance capabilities to meet war front demands from the MQ-9, MQ-1s enter the transition phase out of active inventory.
