Fairchild Air Force Base is located near Spokane, Washington and was originally established in 1942 as the Spokane Air Depot. Its main host unit is the 92nd Air Refueling Wing. Fairchild's other units include the 509th Weapons Squadron, the 368th Recruiting Squadron, and the base has become the main hub of the Air Force tanker fleet on the west coast.
At one time, more than half of the nuclear-armed warheads in the United States resided at Fairchild. Today, the former missile sites still exist and some of the silos off base have been privatized. For more history of Fairchild, click the history link on the left.
