Celebrating 80 years of excellence in Spokane!

2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the Spokane Air Depot, now known as Fairchild Air Force Base. The base has been an integral part of our nation’s defense strategy from the very beginning. From a World War II repair and supply depot to a Strategic Air Command bomber, tanker, and missile wing during the Cold War, to an Air Mobility Command Air Refueling Wing fueling the fight and supporting combat operations during numerous contingency operations. Today, Fairchild’s aircraft and personnel make up the backbone of the Air Force’s tanker fleet on the West Coast. It is home to the Air Force’s premier tanker base and Survival Training School.

Over the years, the 92d and 141st ARW’s have forged an enduring collaboration with the Spokane community. As Team Fairchild continues to meet future challenges, we will preserve the legacy of excellence that began more than 80 years ago working together as partners with the Spokane Community.

Thank you to our community partners who have supported the Morale, Welfarea nd Recreation Fund in 2022 and sponsored parts of the Skyfest and more than 50 other events to make a difference in the quality of life of our Airmen and their families.
