MacDill Air Force Base ATC Tower


MacDill Air Force Base, located in south Tampa, was constructed as MacDill Field prior to World War II. During the 1950s and 1960s, it was a Strategic Air Command base for B-47 and later B-52 bombers. In the 1960s, it transitioned to a Tactical Air Command installation briefly operating the F-84 Thunderstreak jet fighter. During the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s, it operated F-4 Phantom II fighters, followed by F-16 Fighting Falcons in the 1980s and 1990s.

MacDill is currently an Air Mobility Command installation, home to the 6th Air Mobility Wing, and its 310th Airlift Squadron, flying the C-37, and the 91st Air Refueling Squadron, flying the KC-135, augmented by the Air Force Reserve Command’s 927th Air Refueling Wing and 63d Air Refueling Squadron flying the same KC-135s.
