The U.S. Air Force has assigned Brig. Gen. John Newberry as program executive officer for bombers and Brig. Gen. Dale White as POE for fighters and advanced aircraft as part of reorganization efforts within the military service's acquisition mission area.

Both officers will work at Wright-Patterson AF Base in Ohio, the Department of Defense said Friday.

Newberry has led the tanker directorate at the AF Life Cycle Management Center over the past year with responsibility over lifecycle activities for the branch's aerial refueling aircraft fleet.

He also held the positions of KC-146 system program manager and deputy PEO of the mobility directorate during his previous assignments at Wright-Patterson AFB.

His career also included stints at the Pentagon as branch chief for strategic and tactical systems and as joint warfighting capabilities analyst within the Joint Chiefs of Staff J8 directorate.

He previously supported contractor logistics operations for 69 aircraft as commander of the 546th Aircraft Sustainment Squadron at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center.

White assumed the advanced aircraft PEO role in October 2019 after he led the intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and special operations forces programs at Wright-Patterson AFB.

Previously, he was senior materiel leader and system program director of the B-21 Raider program in USAF's Rapid Capabilities Office.

His previous staff assignments included time as executive officer to the chief of Air Force Materiel Command and to the military deputy for the assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition.
