New aircrew badge announcement made at 22 Wing North Bay
NORTH BAY, Ontario —
The Commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force unveiled the new Airborne Warning and Control System aircrew badge (‘wings’) at North Bay’s 22 Wing/Canadian Air Defence Sector on Oct. 23, 2020.
The badge was converted from the current upswept flight crew specialty badge to the more appropriate out-stretched full wing Aircrew Flying badge and will be worn by AWACS qualified Aerospace Controllers and Aerospace Control Operators. The timing of this ceremony was fitting given that October 2020 marks the 80th anniversary of air defence operations in the RCAF.
