The Navy's E-6
TACAMO provides airborne command, control, and communications between the National Command Authority and U.
Navy E-6 flight-crew members support the strategic communications and airborne command-post mission of the nation's joint chiefs of staff.
In support of the program, which is operated out of Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City, Hughes Training is providing academic and simulation training for Air Force and Navy pilots, navigators and flight engineers who fly either the E-3 or E-6.
The paintings depict a variety of ground and flight crew training activities in the E-3 and E-6 aircraft and represent the dual nature of Hughes Training's responsibilities in both the Air Force and Navy training areas.
Hughes Training provides academic and flight simulator training for the Air Force's E-3 Airborne Warning and Control System and the Navy's E-6 flight crew members.
