The 507th Air Refueling Wing at Tinker Air Force Base is assuming command over the 730th Air Mobility Training Squadron from Altus Air Force Base.

The 730th is a reserve unit of the Air Force charged with training aircrew. The reservists in the unit work next to active duty airmen.

Commander Col. Brian Davis of the 507th Air Refueling Wing says the unit is excited to be working with the airmen and happy to be gaining a new mission.

The training squadron is comprised of traditional reservists and air reserve technicians.
