Serving as the aerial arm of the Nevada National Guard, the Nevada Air Force is headquartered at Nellis Air Force Base – a military installation located in North Las Vegas.
In October 1955, Nevada history was made with the establishment of the 702nd Fighter-Bomber Squadron. This marked the National Guard’s inaugural flying unit and came with an array of F-86 Sabre jets. But two years later, the squadron underwent a redesignation, becoming the 192nd Tactical Fighter Squadron. With this new label came newfound aircraft—F-100 Super Sabres.
In 1961, in the wake of the Berlin Crisis, the 192nd Tactical Fighter Squadron responded to the urgent call to action and was sent to Germany. For one year, they fulfilled their duties with great distinction until they were transferred to Tactical Air Command in 1962.
The 192nd Tactical Fighter Squadron’s second active duty service was a response to the Pueblo Crisis in 1968, which resulted in a deployment to Korea. The squadron’s stay there was a year long, until passing from Tactical Air Command into 1969.
In the summer of 1976, the squadron answered the call of duty in response to the Mayaguez Crisis, relocating to Thailand. Although initially meant to be a temporary deployment, the squadron ultimately remained in Thailand until 1977 – at which point Tactical Air Command claimed them for their assignments.
Over the years, this squadron has been called back into service multiple times, with the most recent occasion coming to pass during the Persian Gulf Crisis of 1990.
The Nevada Air Force provides swift and decisive action on any global stage, armed with the most powerful fighter jet ever constructed: the F-15 Eagle. Ready to be deployed at any moment, this combat-ready force puts the pride of their nation on full display.
As a vital arm of the Nevada National Guard, the Nevada Air Force proudly dedicates itself to safeguarding the state and country from any threats.Post time: 2023-06-20
