Signs of the apocalypse?: Air Force BG Paul Tibbets takes over 509th Bomb Wing

When I saw that Brig. Gen. Paul Tibbets IV had been named to command the 509th Bomb Wing, Air Force Global Strike Command, I thought that name and unit seemed familiar.

It kind of stuns me that we seem to have multi-generation bombers in the United States. But it shouldn’t. Trades often are passed on from father to son.
