A Day in the Life
The 86th Airlift Wing Wing Staff Agencies consist of several base units organized directly under the wing.
The 86th Maintenance Group accomplishes all aspects of aircraft equipment maintenance to fulfill the 86th Airlift Wing’s airlift, contingency and support missions. They also provide back shop maintenance and ground support for Air Mobility Command, U.S. European Command and U.S. Central Command assets.
The 86th Mission Support Group is one of the largest MSGs in the Air Force and is larger than some wings with approximately 3,600 members serving more than 50,000 Americans — the largest concentration of Americans outside the continental U.S.
As the largest U.S. Air Force overseas clinic, the 86th Medical Group has made its footprints visible across 93 other countries, showing its expansive capabilities.
As one of only two logistics readiness groups in the Air Force, the 86th Logistics Readiness Group houses the largest transportation, supply, logistics plans and war reserve materiel accounts in U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa.
