A week in history
92nd Bomb Wing re-designated as 92nd Air Refueling Wing, and Fairchild Air Force Base was transferred from Air Combat Command to Air Mobility Command. The ceremony marked the creation of the largest ARW in the Air Force with five active during air refueling squadrons totaling more than 60 KC-135s assigned. Dubbed, “Tanker Hub of the Northwest,” the wing was capable of maintaining an air bridge across the nation and world in support of U.S. and allied forces. The first commander was Brig. Gen. Gary Voellger. (Courtesy Photo)
