55th Wing Association reunites at museum

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Peterson Air and Space Museum volunteer docent Dave Austin gives a tour to visiting members of the 55th Wing Association inside the museum’s EC-121 “Warning Star” display aircraft Sept. 8, 2012. The 55th Wing Association hosted a reunion this year in Colorado Springs and drew members representing more than 20 states, including pilots, mechanics, navigators, Airmen and their family members. The 55th Wing, the Fightin’ Fifty-Fifth, activated Jan. 15, 1941, at Hamilton Field, Calif. The wing was the first P-38 unit in the European theater and primarily a reconnaissance unit from the mid 1940s until the late 1990s. Currently the 55th Wing’s missions execute more diverse flying operations. The 55th Wing is now located at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., and is Air Combat Command’s largest wing.
