Ladies and gentlemen,
The Warwick Rotary Club hosted a very inspirational speaker last night. Colonel Matthew H. Molloy is responsible for a wing composed of two groups and eight squadrons, including two F-22A fighter squadrons; holds four Masters degrees; has won nine major awards and distinctions and is a command pilot with more than 3,100 flying hours in the F-15 and F-22.
The mission of United States Air Force is to "fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace."
US Air Force core values:
1. Integrity first
2. Service before self
3. Excellence in all we do
Col. Malloy recited part of the Airmen's Creed http://www.airforce.com/learn-about/airmans-creed/ before he presented us the Air Force main capabilities: global vigilance, global reach, and global power.
The F-22 Raptor fascinated me (see a demo here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUdt6ZSWUsI). The Raptor is an amazing fighter airplane that flies at 800 KCAS and uses stealth technology.
If you choose to remember five things about the Raptor, please remember these: Precision, Stealth, Super Cruise, Precision Attack, and Integrated Avionics.
Page ran the meeting last night. We had four guests- thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again soon.
