OKLAHOMA CITY — Tinker Air Force Base’s 552nd Air Control Wing has a new commander.
Col. Patricia D. Hoffman assumed command of the wing that flies the E-3 Airborne Warning and Control System planes during a ceremony Wednesday on the base near Oklahoma City.
Hoffman replaces Brig. Gen. Lori Robinson, who is leaving Tinker to assume a new position at the Pentagon. Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, the commander of the 8th Air Force, presided over the change-of-command ceremony.
Earlier in her career, Hoffman served as an air battle manager aboard an AWACS jet.
