'Today's Air Force' features a look around the service

  • Published
In this edition of "Today's Air Force," the Air Force Thunderbirds make history with the first Department of Defense aerial demonstration where participating aircraft are fueled by biofuel.  Plus, you'll get an update on conditions at Misawa Air Base, Japan, since the earthquake and tsunami hit that nation in March. And, meet the first amputee to graduate from Air Force pilot training. You'll see those stories and much more this week on Today's Air Force.

The 30-minute, weekly news show can be seen every day on The Pentagon Channel and American Forces Television Service stations around the world. The show also airs on more than 140 public cable-access stations within the United States. If you would like your local public access station to carry this program, send a request to DMASA.Marketing@dma.mil.
