With 2,041 officers, enlisted and civilian personnel, the 445th Airlift Wing is under the Air Force Reserve Command, Robins Air Force Base, Ga. If mobilized, the wing becomes part of Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base.
The wing has nine C-17 Globemaster III aircraft. Built by Boeing, the C-17 is the newest, most flexible cargo aircraft to enter the airlift force, according to the Air Force.
The 445th Airlift Wing was activated at Wright-Patterson in October 1994 when two former units were combined: the 906th Fighter Group from Wright-Patterson and the 907th Tactical Airlift Group from Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base.
