LRAFB History Fast Fact

Team Little Rock History Fact of the Week • 132 days to go until LRAFB turns 60!

On May 31, 1971, the host unit at Little Rock Air Force Base host unit, the 64th Tactical Airlift Wing, inactivated after only one year at the base and was immediately replaced by the 314th TAW, previously assigned to Ching Chuan Kang Air Base, Taiwan. The 314 TAW transferred to Little Rock without personnel or equipment, assuming the personnel and assets of the inactivated 64 TAW, including the 61st and 62d Tactical Airlift Squadrons. Strategic Air Command’s 308th Strategic Missile Wing and the 4442nd Combat Crew Training Wing (the C-130 Formal Training Unit) were the major tenant units. The 314th remained the host unit at Little Rock AFB for the next 37 years.
