Langley AFB

Langley AFB Logo Langley AFB is located three miles north of the city of Hampton on the Virginia Peninsula. A part of Hampton, Virginia's Back River became the forefront of airpower on an early August day in 1917 when it became known as Langley Field. Langley, named in honor of American aviation pioneer Samuel Pierpont Langley, has been a staple in the Hampton Roads lifestyle for more than 75 years. Since August 7, 1917, Langley Field has been a pioneer in aviation just like its namesake.

This history of Langley represents significant chapters in the evolution of the Air Force. Origionally set up as the Army's Aviation Experimental Station and Proving Grounds, the people who have served at Langley are as important as the important as the prominent parts they've played in aerospace events. Boasting both the first and second oldest fighter units in America's aviation history, present day Langley based units have been called home by such air power greats as Eddy Rickenbacker, Raul Lufberry, Douglas Campbell and Frank Luke JR., known as the "Arizona Balloon Buster:. Langley personnel have often lead the way in global action and have flown lighter-than air aircrafts, Spads, Jennys, F-86 Sabre Jets, F-4 Phantom IIs, F-15 Eagle and out newest arrival the F-22A Raptor.

We are also home to the Air Combat Command, the largest major comman in the USAF. Wing and MAJCOM combine for a total of about 8,800 Airmen, 2,000 DoD Civilians, 13,000 family members and 800 non-appropriated fund employees.
