Heather Pringle and Davilyn Parker, wife of AFRL Aerospace Engineer Dr. Greg Parker, view confetti during a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony for the lab’s newest wind tunnel, the Parker Subsonic Research Facility, or SuRF, at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, July 7, 2022. The facility is named after Dr. Greg Parker, a beloved member of AFRL's Aerospace Systems Directorate, who died after a long battle with cancer. SuRF is a low-speed wind tunnel used to evaluate prototype models including 3D-printed components that allows engineers to validate new aircraft designs. (U.S. Air Force photo / Rick Eldridge)
