TV broadcaster flies with 148th Fighter Wing

Ron Mott, a nationally-syndicated television broadcaster, gives a thumbs up to his camera crew following his mission familiarization flight with the Minnesota Air National Guard’s 148th Fighter Wing, Duluth, MN. The flight showcased NORAD's air-defense mission and included intercept operations with a Civil Air Patrol aircraft and an inflight refueling with a Wisconsin Air National Guard KC-135 from the 128th Air Refueling Wing. NORAD, along with their interagency partners -- the FAA, Department of Homeland Security, and Customs and Border Patrol -- provided the air defense shield for this year's Super Bowl being held in Minneapolis, MN.
