A Team of Teams
Almost 2,000 Airmen serving one wing with two groups, 14 squadrons, and 17 wing staff agencies, the 501st serves a community of more than 14,000 personnel spread across seven installations. Additionally, the wing supports mission partners from the NATO Joint Warfare Center, U.S. European Command, U.S. Africa Command, NATO Intelligence Fusion Center, Air Force Global Strike Command, and nearly 65 other U.S. military and government agencies throughout the United Kingdom and Norway.
An Evolving Mission
The wing is both postured for today's mission and ready to transform as it executes the European Infrastructure Consolidation initiative to meet tomorrow's demands. In the coming years, operations and responsibilities will shift to more efficiently and effectively array existing force structure within the European theater.
A Strong Partner
The United States and the United Kingdom share a special bond nurtured over decades of commitment to our shared values of peace, security and prosperity. The depth of the U.S. and the U.K. partnership will only grow as together we face the increasingly complex, high-end threats of today and tomorrow.
