Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The polestar, a perfect celestial constant, rests against a field of blue, representing the heavens. The aircraft issuing lightning bolts, symbolizes the airborne platform and electronic emissions used to check alignment and safety of ground stations. The beam, emitted from the ground station, denotes the sterling signal that unit members strive to achieve. All elements reflect the unit's motto, "COMBAT FLIGHT CHECK."
