Airmen From Tinker Return From Overseas Mission

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - About 110 airmen from an Oklahoma-based group are scheduled to return home from a six-month deployment.

The airmen with the 552nd Air Control Wing are expected to arrive about 4 p.m. Wednesday at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City. The group was deployed to southwest Asia in support of ongoing operations in Afghanistan.

Tinker officials say the group provided weather surveillance and communications needed to track and direct aircraft in the area.
