The 62nd Aircraft Generation Squadron (62nd AGS) depicted in this artwork, is a historical predecessor to the current 62nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron (AMXS) at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Unit history: Constituted as the 62 Periodic Maintenance Squadron on 3 Feb 1958 and activated on 1 Mar 1958. Redesignated as the 62 Organizational Maintenance Squadron on 8 Feb 1961 and as the Aircraft Generation Squadron on 1 Aug 1990. The unit is currently designated as the 62nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron as of 1 Oct 2002.
The McChord facility was consolidated with the U.S. Army’s Fort Lewis on 1 February 2010 to become part of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord complex. This initiative was driven by the Base Realignment and Closure Round in 2005 and is designed to combine current infrastructure into one maximizing war fighting capability and efficiency, while saving taxpayer dollars.
The C-141 Starlifter was a military strategic airlifter in service with the Military Air Transport Service(MATS), its successor organization the Military Airlift Command (MAC), and finally the Air Mobility Command(AMC) of the United States Air Force.
