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 Air Base, Germany. The 726 AMS provides premier C-5 and C-17 enroute 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 and only a 30-minute drive away from the 2000-year old city of Trier. As host of the Airlift/Tanker Association (A/TA) Halvorsen chapter, the unit also has a proud legacy deep-seated in history, as Colonel Gail Halvorsen is known for his key role during the Berlin Airlift in 1948. He flew relief missions in a C-54 Skymaster and became the famous 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.
