In 1909, the United States Military purchased its first aircraft. Through WWI and WWII, the importance of controlling airspace on the battlefield had grown significantly being used in every aspect of war and peacetime use. In 1947, the need for a formalized branch of service to be established to further the development and deployment of America’s Air Forces was seen as vital to modernization and organization efforts. Today we salute the USAF on their 74th Birthday! The USAF today continues to meet the highest standards possible, producing many of the finest pilots the world has ever seen.
