WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) - Robins Air Force Base has a new installation commander.

The Telegraph newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1SPEdFE ) Col. Jeff King took command of the 78th Air Base Wing on Thursday. The newspaper reports that the wing commander is also the installation commander, playing a role like that of a mayor.

King takes over from Col. Chris Hill, who was wing commander for two years and is moving to a new post at the Pentagon.

King comes to Robins from Kadena Air Base, in Okinawa, Japan, where he commanded the 18th Maintenance Group. The group flies 54 F-15s and Robins is responsible for keeping the decades-old fighters in the air worldwide.

King says his priorities are safety, efficiency and having a good relationship with the work force.
