Two USAF Squadrons Created to Support Presidential Campaign
With money having been thrown to the winds for the past several years and as the Air Force reduces combat squadrons for lack of funds, two new airlift squadrons are being created in support of one political party for the election season.
This forwarded to me yesterday:.
The United States Air Force has established two new airlift squadrons to
support President Obama's travel needs during the campaign season.
The 305th and 306th Expeditionary Airlift Squadrons were activated
as subordinate units of the 89th Airlift Wing on December 1.
The 305th will operate out of New Castle, DE, with 5 C-130H
medium lift transport aircraft, 8 full sets of aircrew, 60 assigned
maintenance personnel and 12 operations personnel.
The 306th will operate out of Andrews AFB, with 4 C-17 heavy lift
transports, 7 full aircrew, 60 maintenance personnel, and 10
operations personnel will be assigned.
Operations for the two squadrons are to commence in April, and will
run through the election. The aircraft and personnel will be released
back to their original units after Nov. 2.
