Davis Monthan AFB

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base located eight miles southeast of downtown Tucson, Arizona.
It was founded in 1925 as Davis-Monthan Landing Field.
The host unit for Davis-Monthan AFB is the 355th Wing (355 WG) assigned to Twelfth Air Force (12 AF), part of Air Combat Command (ACC).
The base is best known as the location of the Air Force Materiel Command’s 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (309 AMARG), the aircraft yard for all surplus military and U.S. government aircraft and space vehicles.
Tucson’s dry climate and alkaline soil make it an ideal location to store and preserve aircraft; more than 4,000 military aircraft are parked at the base.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is a major ACC installation.
The 355th Wing (355 WG) provides A-10 Thunderbolt II close air support and OA-10 forward air controllers to ground forces around the world.
The 355 FW is a host unit that provides medical, logistical, mission and operational support to assigned units and is the only formal training unit for the A-10 aircraft and provides initial and recurrent training to all U.S. Air Force A-10 and OA-10 pilots, including those in the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) and the Air National Guard (ANG).
In October 2018, the 563rd Rescue Group, formerly a geographically separate unit from the 23rd Wing at Moody AFB, Georgia, was transferred to the 355th Wing, along with its HC-130J COMBAT KING II and HH-60G Pave Hawk aircraft.
