127th Wing Command Priorities



Our Heritage

Our origins date back to the days of Wilbur & Orville Wright, when U.S. Army Lt. Thomas Selfridge was killed while flying on a demonstration flight with Orville Wright in 1908. In 1917 Henry B. Joy, a local auto pioneer, leased his rural airfield near Detroit to the military to train pilots in preparation for the U.S.' entry into WWI. The rest is our history.
