Other Comments:

The Military Airlift Command (MAC) is an inactive United States Air Force Major Command, headquartered at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. Established in on 1 January 1966, MAC was the primary strategic airlift organization of the Air Force until 1974, when Air Force tactical airlift units were merged into MAC to create a unified airlift organization.

In 1982, the World War II Air Transport Command (ATC) (1942-1948) and the postwar Military Air Transport Service (MATS) (1948-1966) were consolidated with MAC, providing a continuous history of long range airlift. Inactivated on 1 June 1992, its personnel and equipment were reassigned to the new Air Mobility Command.

MAC supported USAF Special Operations forces organized under MATS on an as-required basis until the establishment of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) in 1990.

Memories For This Unit

Other Memories
Special Operations

Although the major mission of Rhein-Main Air Base was strategic and tactical airlift, the base also operated a substantial special operations mission under the cognizance of the former Tactical Air Command (TAC), United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE), the 23d Air Force (23 AF) of the former Military Airlift Command (MAC) and finally the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC).
