The 524th Special Operations Squadron (524th SOS), is one of seven flying squadrons within the 27th Special Operations Wing. The squadron flies C-146A ‘Wolfhound‘ specialized airlift aircraft. The unit utilizes these aircraft to accomplish global special operations taskings as an Air Force component member of USSOCOM. Crews plan, prepare and execute non-standard aviation (NSAv) missions in support of joint-special operations forces while directly supporting theater special operations commanders by conduction of night vision goggle (NVG) infiltration, exfiltration, resupply and other combat taskings on unimproved runways.
The C-146A is a twin-engine, high-wing aircraft equipped with a configurable cabin capable of various passenger and cargo combinations, as well as casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) missions. The aircraft can carry a maximum of 27 passengers or 6,000 pounds of cargo, or up to four litter patients. Duke Field, also known as Eglin AFB Auxiliary Field #3, is a military airport located three miles south of the central business district of Crestview, Florida. Although technically part of the larger nearby Eglin Air Force Base complex, today Duke Field is essentially a small air force base in its own right.
