History of 92nd Bombardment Wing layout

The 92d Bombardment Wing, Very Heavy, was established 17 Nov. 1947, as the host unit at Spokane Army Air Field. The wing acted as the parent wing at Spokane AAF and provided oversight to the 98th BW which was also assigned to the base. The 92nd Bombardment Group, "Fame's Favored Few," with the 325th, 326th and 327th Bombardment Squadrons and the 98th BG with the 343rd, 344th and 345th Bombardment Squadrons were assigned to the 92nd BW and 98th BWs, respectively. When they were born, they were flying the most modern bomber of the day, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress. Their combined total of 60 B-29s made the 92nd BW the largest B-29 wing in Strategic Air Command.
