Scott, S-Sgt. William L. (Military - 1974)
S-Sgt. William L. Scott, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Scott of Rt. 1 Neillsville, is participating in the Air Force’s “William Tell” fighter-interceptor weapons meet at Tyndall AFB, Fla.
Sgt. Scott, an aircraft maintenance technician, is a member of the maintenance team representing the 318th Fighter Interceptor Squadron from McChord AFB, Wa. He is helping support his unit’s interceptor aircrews, who are flying F-106 Delta Dart aircraft during the meet.
Nine units, representing the Aerospace Defense Command, Air National Guard and the Canadian Air Force, are matching their aerial marksmanship during the competition that is designed to evaluate aircrews and controller teams in the air defense system.
The elite teams are using the Air Force test range over the Gulf of Mexico. Pilots have the task of intercepting and shooting down the radio controlled “Fire bee” drones, that fly at speeds over 600 miles per hour at altitudes of 60,000 feet.
Sgt. Scott is a 1964 graduate of Neillsville High School.
