305th Air Mobility Wing




Headquartered at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., the 305th Air Mobility Wing extends America's global reach by generating, mobilizing and deploying 30 KC-10 and 14 C-17 aircraft to conduct strategic airlift and air refueling missions worldwide. Additionally, the Wing operates two of America's largest strategic aerial ports supporting the delivery of cargo and personnel to combatant commanders abroad. Uniquely, as a result of Joint Base transfer, the 305 AMW directs the operations of two geographically separated airfields--one at McGuire and another at Lakehurst.
