The mission of “The Chief's Own“ is operations support, but the diversity of the 11th Wing's functions is what makes it unique. A world-class organization with world-class people focusing on wartime readiness and wartime customer support.
While the last fixed-wing aircraft left Bolling in 1962, the names mentioned in the history of Bolling AFB read like the who's who of early aviation: Charles “Lucky Lindy“ Lindbergh, Eddie Rickenbacker, Billy Mitchell, H.H. “Hap“ Arnold, Jimmy Doolittle, Ira C. Eaker and Wiley Post.
