WELLINGTON - ALL BlackS legend Richie McCaw becomes Air Force commander

He made his name as an openside flanker, but McCaw is now a wing commander.

The two-time Rugby World Cup winner has been an honourary Royal New Zealand Air Force squadron leader since 2009.

The new position was announced at a leadership forum at Ohakea.

He was appointed by the chief of Air Force.

In a post on Facebook, the Air Force said McCaw's career was built on the "very similar values that holds dear - courage, commitment and comradeship".

The former All Black captain is a keen aviator, and upon announcing his retirement from rugby said he was keen to work towards getting his commercial pilot's licence.
