  • Aerodynamic technologies for mobility aircraft promise high-return on investment

    As part of its effort to increase readiness and capability, the Air Force is working to introduce aerodynamic technologies on mobility aircraft to improve airflow, reduce maintenance issues, increase payload capability, and decrease fuel demand. Air Mobility Command, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and Air Force Operational Energy have partnered with commercial vendors to research, design, test, and certify a number of these innovations into the mobility fleet, including the KC-135 Stratotanker, C-17 Globemaster III, and C-130 Hercules. Each initiative is at various phases of development and transition, gaining momentum with the influx of funding from the Fiscal Year 2022 Presidential Budget.


 The 477th Fighter Group is Air Force Reserve Command's first F-22A Raptor unit. 

The 477th FG was originally established in May 1943 as a Bombardment Group to train the legendary World War II aviators known as the Tuskegee Airmen. 

The men and women of the 477th FG are integrated with their active duty Air Force partners in most F-22A mission areas increasing efficiency and overall combat capability while retaining Reserve administrative support and career enhancement.
