Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The vintage airplane, a Wright Flyer, is indicative of the aviation heritage of Wright-Patterson AFB, which the wing has supported since 1948. Wright-Patterson is known as the birthplace of aviation. The center portion ? a mach cone or shock wave ? denotes the aerospace mission of the Wing. The stylized aircraft represent modern day weapon systems and symbolize the Wing's ongoing support of Wright-Patterson AFB's role in the development of airpower.
