COLUMBUS, MISS. — Col. John Nichols will take over as the new wing commander of the 14th Flying Training Wing at Columbus Air Force Base on July 11.

Nichols will succeed Col. Jim Sears, who has been wing commander since July 2012.

Sears is going to San Antonio, Texas, where he will serve as chief of officer assignments at Randolph Air Force Base.

Nichols, a senior pilot with more than 2,000 flight hours, is deployed overseas but commands the 18th Operations Group at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota. The group flies the B-1 bomber.

Nichols was commissioned in 1992 after receiving his degree in political science from the Air Force Academy.
