ABOUT MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE
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.
