- n. an officer in the airforce
Sorry, no etymologies found.
At work in his “secure vault” at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii, Captain Hank Brandli, an air force officer charged with tracking weather systems for the top-secret National Reconnaissance Office’s ultra-classified Corona spy satellite program, had detected the early formation of a deadly “Screaming Eagle” thunderstorm with tops at 50,000 feet forming over exactly where he knew the Apollo 11 astronauts were supposed to come down.
He made no comment about the fact I was the first nonpilot air force officer ever to fly in space.
The air force officer also noted that Siegmond was enjoying the publicity and the speculation caused by his sighting.
