About:
Headquartered at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., the 305th Air Mobility Wing extends America's global reach by generating, mobilizing and deploying C-17 Globemaster IIIs to conduct strategic airlift and air refueling missions worldwide. In November 2021, the wing began transitioning to the new KC-46 Pegasus air refueling aircraft. 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.
