    Product Description

    USAF Enlisted Aircrew Badge
    AIR FORCE ENLISTED AIRCREW BADGE (WINGS) Also used for Army Air Forces in World War II. A silver oxide (pewter type) badge with shield centered on 3 inch wings, and the mini badge will be approximately 2 inches in length. The Air Force Aircrew Badge is a direct successor to the Army Air Forces version of the decoration. Originally known simply as the Aircrew Badge, the Air Force began issuing the decoration to enlisted Aircrew members in 1947. By the time of the Korean War, regulations had been established for a senior and master version of the badge, indicated by a star and wreath above the decoration. As with the Army Aviator Badge, seniority of the Aircrew Badge was determined by flight hours obtained and years of service in the Air Force. With the decline of the Observer Badge, a need quickly arose to award an Aircrew Badge to officers who had been trained as in-flight support personnel. By the time of the Vietnam War, the Air Force had created an Officer Aircrew Badge which was issued to non-rated officers trained for in-flight operations.
