How prestigious is it to win BOTH the Hughes Trophy and the William Tell competition?

    I would say that is impressive.

    The William Tell competition mainly looks at fighter tactics.

    The Hughes Trophy looks at missile quals; missions flown; operational readiness, and flight safety.

    To win both in a year is impressive to me.

    When my squadron was presented the Hughes Trophy it was a big deal.
