492nd SOW activation completes circle of Air Commando history
Air Commandos with the Air Force Special Operations Air Warfare Center stand in formation before the 492nd Special Operations Wing activation ceremony at Hurlburt Field, Fla., May 10, 2017. The designator for the 492nd SOW dates back to WWII when the 801st Bombardment Group was established at Harrington Field, England, in September 1943. Almost a year later, it would be redesignated as the 492nd Bombardment Group, a cover for their secret mission-Operation Carpetbagger. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Krystal M. Garrett)
