98th Strategic Wing

European mission

The wing was inactivated on June 25, 1966 at Lincoln AFB, but activated the same day at Torrejon Air Base, Spain replacing the 3970th Strategic Wing. The 3970th SW was established on 1 February 1964 at Torrejon as a provisional SAC MAJCOM Wing with a mission to support B-47 and KC-135 elements from SAC CONUS-based units deployed to Europe as part of REFLEX deployments and provide a refueling mission to USAFE tactical fighters.

In 1966, in order to retain the lineage of its provisional wing at Torrejon, Headquarters SAC received authority from Headquarters USAF to discontinue its MAJCOM wing and activate a regular AFCON wing which was inactive at the time which could carry a lineage and history of the mission at Anderson. On 5 June 1966, the 3970th SW was redesignated as the 98th Strategic Wing. For the next decade, the 98th had no tactical aircraft components assigned to it, but rather used attached KC-135 tankers and crews furnished by other SAC wings to provide air refueling support for the operational, alert exercise commitment of SAC, TAC, USAFE and NATO. These aircraft were deployed for 30 Day Temporary Duty as the Spanish Tanker Task Force. It’s operational area included the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, most of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

The Wing maintained a detachment at RAF Upper Heyford 1966-1970 and relocated to RAF Mildenhall April 1970 to December 1976 supporting RC-135 Reconnaissance Aircraft, and supporting KC-135 Tankers forwarded deployed from the Spanish Tanker Task Force.

66th FMS - 66th CAMS
Submitted by Terry Horstead.

"The Patch Identifcation is (Unit designatation is based on the Age of the patch) 66th Field Maintenance Squadron. The last time this unit was active it was under the designation of the 66th Consolidated Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Sembach AB, Germany. The CAMS is almost always an option for a small maint unit that is linked to the Field Maintenance Squadron Lineage (Note: There are exceptions to that rule that I know of and they DO NOT apply in this case). I was assigned to a different unit within the 66th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing while it was at Upper Heyford during that time period, only our two flying squadrons wore squadron insignia, however I do not know about the period of time the unit was assigned to Laon AB, France and the first tour of duty at Sembach in the 1950's. My belief and it on is speciulative that it was designed and used while the unit was at Shaw AFB nad possiblely on it's early years in Europe.

The Unit was assigned to the 66th Tactical reconnaissance Wing and served at: Shaw AFB, SC, 01 Jan – 25 Jun 1953; Sembach AB, Germany, 07 Jul 1953; Laon AB, France, 10 Jul 1958; RAF Upper Heyford, England, 01 Sep 1966 – 01 Apr 1970. Sembach AB, Germany, 1 Jun 1985 – 31 Mar 1992. (I am not sure if the unit was / is active at:) Hanscom AFB, MA, 01 Oct 1994 –.

While at RAF Upper Heyford beside supporting the standard Field Maintenance functions, it supported the C-47 / T-29 / C-54 maintenance functions for assigned to Det 1 66th TRW at RAF Northolt & all 3rd AF units as well as the 322nd AD (MAC) at RAF High Wycombe. The 322nd AD Commander's T-29 was based at RAF Upper Heyford attached to the 66th FMS."
