McQuade takes over base

15 Wing Moose Jaw is officially getting a new commander on Wednesday, when Colonel Bruce McQuade takes over at the base.

The job came open after Colonel Marc Ouellet was relieved of his command earlier this year. He faces a number of charges under military law including obstruction of justice, after a small explosion in April hurt two people. Ouellet has been reassigned to a desk job in Ottawa.

The change of command ceremony will take place on Wednesday morning. 15 Wing is the home of a NATO flight training school and the famous Snowbirds flying team.
