Global strike leader connects with nuclear command, control team
U.S. Air Force Gen. Timothy Ray, Air Force Global Strike Command commander walks the flightline as a U.S. Navy E-6B aircraft, with a crew which includes members of the 625th Strategic Operations Squadron, taxis at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska Sept. 13, 2018. The 625 STOS mission is unique to the ICBM community in that it provides the commander of United States Strategic Command with a secondary Minuteman III launch capability through the Airborne Launch Control System. Housed aboard the Navy's E-6B aircraft, the ALCS serves as a vital backup to Minuteman launch control centers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Drew Nystrom)
