US Army Air Corps

Very much enjoy getting to discover and research these moments in history. As Social Media Manager for the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Wings Over America

July 2, 1926 the Air Corps Act became law creating the United States Army Air Corps. A history which went on to become the United States Army Air Forces on June 20, 1941. Today as we know, it is now the United States Air Force created in 1947. A proud heritage of aviation and service from 92 years ago today.

Thank You to Palm Springs Air Museum friend Brooks Wachtel, Emmy Award Winner and Co-Creator of the History Channel series “DogFights” for this moment in history.
