961st AACS keeps 'eyes in the sky'

U.S. Air Force Capt. Neal Miest, 961st Airborne Air Control Squadron contingency flight commander and senior director, looks across the cabin of an E-3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System aircraft before takeoff on Kadena Air Base, Japan, April 18, 2013. Without the ability AWACS provide to perform air battle management, or comprehensive visibility and direction of practically all aircraft in the surveyed region, other airborne assets would be virtually blind to other aircraft in a skyward battle.
