The 319th Special Operations Squadron (Stationed at Hurlburt Field, Florida) was first formed on 9 August 1944 as the 319th Troop Carrier Squadron (Commando) and served in the China-Burma-India Theater during World War II. It provided airlift support and flew aerial resupply missions in support of various commando units such as ‘Merrill’s Marauders‘ and the ‘Chindits‘ and conducted airborne drops and glider operations for Allied troops in Burma, central China, and French Indochina in the last year of World War II. It’s mission is to provide intra-theater support for special operations forces and it is currently equipped with the U-28A, a modified version of the Pilatus PC-12. The U-28A was selected for its versatile performance and ability to operate from short and unimproved runway surfaces.
