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.
