The Hawaii Air National Guard performed a unique in-air Change of Command ceremony as Lt. Col. Kelly Church assumed command of the 203rd Air Refueling Squadron from Lt. Col. Scott Oka during an in-air position change with the KC-135 Stratotankers they were respectively flying. During the in-air ceremony, Oka allowed his plane to drop back while Church took the lead representing the passing of command from one commander to the next. The Change of Command ceremony came on the tail-end of a regularly scheduled training sortie.
