On 15 January 2016 LtCol Timothy B. “Papa” Murphy assumed command of the 480th Fighter Squadron, joining the distinguished line of leaders of the finest fighter squadron the world has ever known.  He fills the considerable flight boots of LtCol David J. “Ajax” Berkland, who skillfully led the Great Warhawk Nation since January of 2014.

The Great Warhawk Nation welcomes a new CINC Warhawk and wishes both Papa and Ajax Godspeed in their new postings.

Let’s say hello to the New Guy!!!
