AFCON versus MAJCOM Wings

This page currently focuses on one of the two historical categories of USAF wings -'AFCON' (Headquarters (US) Air Force CONtrolled) units or 'permanent' units, which during the Cold War period were readily distinguished by having one, two or three digit designations, such as the 1st Fighter Wing, 60th Military Airlift Wing, 355th Fighter Wing, and could go through a series of inactivations and activations and still retain their lineage.

There were also MAJCOM (major air command controlled) wings, such as the [1]

During the Gulf War of 1990–91 MAJCOM wings, such as the 7440th Composite Wing (Prov) at Incirlik AB, Turkey, served alongside Provisional Wings such as the 801st Bomb Wing (Provisional) at Morón Air Base, Spain, and other AFCON wings.

In the 1990s MAJCOM wings were mostly inactivated and replaced with AFCON wings. Perhaps the most well known example was the 4404th Wing in Saudi Arabia which was replaced by a three-digit AFCON wing, the 363d Air Expeditionary Wing. It is not clear whether any MAJCOM wings still exist, or whether the system is still in use.
