New Name, Same Game

Officials with the 314th Airlift Wing at Little Rock AFB, Ark., redesignated the 314th Maintenance Operations Squadron as a flight. “To me, the redesignation is something for the history books, but the professionals here will produce the same excellence,” said Capt. Bradley Allen, who assumed command of the new 314th Maintenance Operations Flight during the June 1 redesignation ceremony. Reporting to the 314th Maintenance Group, the 30-person flight will continue overseeing support and maintenance of the 314th AW’s 28 C-130s used for Little Rock’s Hercules training mission. The change to a flight came about since the unit had less than 35 positions assigned to it, the minimum number to remain a squadron, said SSgt. Tyler Hansen, 314th MOF facility manager.
