AWACS pilot makes history as RED FLAG mission commander
Capt. Preston Radford, an Airborne Warning and Control System instructor pilot with the 960th Airborne Air Control Squadron based out of Tinker Air Force Base, made history during RED FLAG 20-1 when he was selected to serve as mission commander. While RED FLAG has been operating out of Nellis AFB quarterly since 1975, this marks the third time in the exercise’s history that an AWACS pilot has been selected to serve as mission commander.
