United States Air Force. The Contents: the first thing I did when I got this book was open it and find the ANG unit I was with for a long time. 1978 was when the Air Force went to the Production Oriented Maintenance Organization concept, and the colored bands on the tails actually designated squadrons. The large scale base closings and reorganizations of the mid-70s had settled out, and ns were stabilized. There’s already a great book, Combat Wings of the Air Force which covers the subject from 1947 to 1977.

England Air Force Base (1942–1992) is a former United States Air Force base in Louisiana, located 5 miles (. km) Northwest of Alexandria and about 170 miles (270 km) Northwest of New Orleans. Originally known as Alexandria Army Air Base, on 23 June 1955 the facility was renamed England Air Force Base in honor of Lt Col John Brooke England (1923–1954). The former base is now Alexandria International Airport.

Midland Publications. There have been a number of titles looking at the organization and composition of the United States Air Force since its formation in 1947. Most of these titles focus on the years between post-World War II and the Vietnam war though a few have ventured into the 1980s to some degree. If you've been trying to keep up with the proper designation of a given flying unit and what they've flown, you've had to pour through numerous surplus Air Force Magazines to piece the picture together. Author Brian Rogers to the rescue. Brian started his USAF career in a hole in the ground - a Titan.

The aim of this book is to assist aviation historians, photographers, and those generally interested in US air power to correctly identify the units to which USAF aircraft have been assigned. Since 1978, the Air Force has been substantially reduced in size and has undergone dramatic reorganization at every level. These changes in size and organization have been reflected in the Air Force's aircraft and units. Many aircraft have been retired, units have been mothballed, and bases closed. On the other hand, the aircraft remaining in service provide a very visible reflection of Air Force restructuring. Many aircraft now wear the insignia of newly-formed major commands. Others carry revised tail markings and paint schemes reflecting the assignment of their units to new commands. Still other aircraft, though remaining at the same base and operated by the same crews, carry new markings as the µflags' of illustrious units displaced by base closures replaced those of existing units. This book is divided into three major sections. The first has 14 chapters containing tables covering every USAF wing, group, squadron, and detachment that were active and had assigned aircraft at any time between 30th April 1978 and 1st October 2002. These listings enable the reader to follow the organizational changes each Air Force flying unit underwent during the period. Next comes a comprehensive index of aircraft markings.

Good source for info.

If you need to know the history of Air Force squadrons or wings between 1978 & 2005 all I can say is trust Brian Rogers's book.

The U. S. Air Force has a certain tendancy to change it's markings from time. This means that a single aircraft may well have several paint jobs over its life as the united are reorganized, as aircraft are moved between units, or seemingly at the whim of various commanders.

This book provides a complete record of what units, what units flew what planes, from what bases at what times, with what kinds of markings. There are two color sections illustrating virtually every type of aircraft in the air force inventory.

This book represents a wealth of information that should prove invaluable to anyone attempting to identify aircraft seen in strange places and in unknown photographs. The material is presented in tabular form, so that it doesn't make for casual reading. The book is organized into three sections. First is the tabular data covering every USAF wing, group, squadron and detachment that was active and had assigned aircraft since 1978. Second is an index of aircraft markings. Third is a chronology showing when major events of the Air Force reorganization took place.

This is information simply not available anywhere else.

This book is for those interested in the US Air Force and its units. Within its 272 pages the reader will find an absolutely incredible amount of information about the U.S. Air Force's Wings, Groups and Squadrons. Dates, aircraft, bases,tailcodes, it's all in here. Although it contains 16 pages of color pictures of aircraft, its value comes from the wealth of data presented in tabular form. Written by a career USAF officer, this book carries a weight of authority not matched in a lot of other efforts in this area. This work is a gold mine for the historian,those interested in USAF squadron lineages or even those who just want to identify aircraft in photographs accurately. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those who follow Air Force unit histories and lineages.

Brian Rogers, a retired military pilot and accomplished aircraft photographer, puts the most important research in recent times onto paper. This illustrated historical reference, by an AMERICAN author, lays out the U.S. Air Force's squadron, group and wing structure leaving no doubt about its completeness. This monumental work should be on the shelf of every enthusiast AND professional military historian.
