OKLAHOMA CITY -

Families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 552d Air Control Wing, "America's Wing." About 50 airmen are on schedule to return to Tinker Air Force Base at 6 a.m. Monday.

The troops were originally scheduled to return at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday. However, officials say the aircraft ferrying the airmen back to the air force base has been delayed in Maine.

The troops were on a six-month deployment at the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates to support the on-going operations in Afghanistan.

According to Tinker officials, the 552d Air Control Wing personnel and aircraft provide all weather surveillance and communications needed by commanders of U.S. and NATO air defense forces to detect, identify, and track fixed-wing aircraft, maritime surface vessels, and to direct friendly aircraft against the enemy before they release ordnance against friendly forces.
