The 726th Air Mobility Squadron (726 AMS) is located at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. It is one of 10 units in the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing headquartered at Ramstein AB. The 726 AMS provides premier C-5M Super Galaxy and C-17 en-route maintenance and aerial port functions for over 1,000 missions, transporting 15,000 passengers and delivering 30,000 tons of cargo to 5 Combatant Commanders in Europe, Africa, and Central Asia annually. Spangdahlem is nestled in the picturesque German Mosel wine-country just 26 miles from Luxembourg and 46 miles from Belgium. The unit has a proud legacy deep-seated in history with direct ties to the Army Air Corps when it operated as the 61st Carrier Group out of Rhein-Main Air Base, Germany in 1945. The unit is well-known for its key role in Operation Vittles, also known as the Berlin Air Lift, in 1948 dropping more than 2.3 million tons of supplies during the Soviet Blockade of East Germany. It was during this mission that Col Gail Halvorsen flew relief missions and became known as the Candy Bomber, when he fashioned individual candy airdrops to German children building morale for the unit, Americans back home, and more than 2 million innocent civilians on the ground.
