The 43rd Airlift Wing at Pope AFB, North Carolina has a new commander. Colonel James Johnson took over the wing today, after his predecessor, Colonel John McDonald, was fired.

Given McDonald's track record, we'd say his dismissal was inevitable. More on Colonel McDonald--and his past antics--in our new article for Examiner.com.
