During Gen. Johns' visit to Selfridge Air National Guard Base Aug. 23-24, 2012, he had the opportunity to recognize a few 127th Wing Airmen for their significant contributions to Air Mobility Command missions. One group lauded was the crew of "Elite 51" who, after refueling an F-18 over Southwest Asia, escorted the jet to safety after it lost operation of one of its engines. General Johns also thanked the Airmen's families for their continuous support of the Air Force. (Air National Guard photo by John S. Swanson)
