2017 Air Force Ball

Phil Tinker, grandson of Maj. Gen. Clarence Tinker, and Jim Diehl, president of the Tinker Heritage Foundation, place the lid on top of the 75th anniversary time capsule during the 2017 Air Force Ball, held on Sept. 16 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Norman, Oklahoma. The time capsule, manufactured by the 76th Commodities Maintenance Group's REACT cell, was printed using the most modern technique of manufacturing to showcase Tinker's latest technology. Included in the first layer of the time capsule are individual boxes containing contributions from the nine largest units of Tinker Air Force Base: Air Force Sustainment Center, Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex, 552nd Air Control Wing, Strategic Communications Wing One, 507th Air Refueling Wing, 448th Supply Chain Management Wing, Defense Information Systems Agency, Defense Logistics Agency-Oklahoma City, and 38th Cyberspace Engineering Installation Group. The second and third layers of the time capsule contain contributions from the 72nd Air Base Wing, the Osage Nation and local communities. The time capsule will be unearthed in 2092.
