The World War II era conjures visions of monochromatic film flickering in sync with the distinctive pop of a reel-to-reel projector, coupled with a monotone voice-over description of planes roaring overhead, gunfire whizzing back and forth and explosions dealing real death and destruction. Those jarring images of WWII have a more grave meaning to the Byrd family. And for 2nd Lt. Colin Asbury, 47th Flying Training Wing pilot, the wings he now wears on his chest are a vivid reminder and direct link to those WWII sights and sounds. Asbury, who recently graduated the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training program at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, had a pair of aviator’s wings pinned by Lt. Col. (ret.) Thomas Byrd May 18, 2018, as the third pilot to wear the set dating back to 1941. Air Force pilots inherently ground themselves with their tradition, as does the rest of the aviation community. And the passing of wings is a time-honored tradition focused on the pedigree of pride and honor.
