The 446th Airlift Wing — the Reserve side of the house at McChord Air Force Base — gets a new wing king Sunday when Col. William Flanigan succeeds Brig. Gen. Eric Crabtree.

They’ll do the honors at 10 a.m. at Hangar 4 on base.

Crabtree is moving on to take command at the Air Reserve Personnel Center in Denver. Flanigan comes to McChord from the 939th Air Refueling Wing in Portland, a KC-135 tanker outfit that’s being BRAC’d.
