104th Fighter Wing Reaches Out to Refugee Students

Col. Tom Bladen, 104th Fighter Wing operations group commander, visits refugee students at Highland Elementary School in Westfield, Massachusetts, June 26, 2017. The visit served as a means to help the children understand why they hear the loud screeching F15 jets flying overhead when playing outside and to help them understand the 104th Fighter Wing flies to protect. Bladen explains how the flight suit prevents the pilots from passing out while flying as he speaks to the students after helping the honoree pilot of the day dawn a 104th Fighter Wing flight suit.
