The Air Force has 4 separate ranks that are E-9 pay grade. Mr. Airey was the first to reach the top one. If you found him in the Guinness Book, it may well be true. Contact the USAF.

He may have been among the first when the rank was created in the late 50s, but the first was CMSgt. Airey.

That was a long time ago and grandma may be half right, not the first, but close.

One of the dumbest thing the USAF has ever done is create supergrades and get rid of warrants.
