961st AACS keeps 'eyes in the sky'

A U.S. Air Force E-3 Sentry pilot from the 961st Airborne Air Control Squadron on Kadena Air Base, Japan, and his copilot fly toward a KC-135 Stratotanker aerial refueling aircraft April 18, 2013. With its command and control capabilities and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission, the E-3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System aircraft assigned to the unit opens the crew's and Kadena's eyes to virtually everything in the air. It's this capability that allows Kadena and other Air Force assets to project superior force for any contingency. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Maeson L. Elleman/Released)
