Fit for a King: C-130J pilot wins 2017 Dutch Huyser award

U.S. Air Force Capt. Greg King, 317th Operations Support Squadron group tactician and C-130J Super Hercules pilot, accepts the 2017 Robert “Dutch” Huyser award from Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein and other senior leaders at the 2017 Airlift/Tanker Association Symposium, Oct. 27 2017. King won the award for his outstanding proficiency and performance of air mobility flight duties and other accomplishments. The award is named after Huyser, a command pilot who served during World War II, the Vietnam War and Korean War flying more than 9,000 hours on various aircraft. One of King’s achievements that led to receiving the award were from leading an aeromedical evacuation where an infant was in critical condition and had to be airlifted to medical care resulting in saving the child’s life.
