Transcript: 3 and a half years after the Wright Bros. discovered flight, The Army Signal Corps created an Aeronautical division. At first this army division mostly consisted of hot air balloons They accepted their first airplane in 1909, this came directly from the Wright Bros. We entered the war on the side of the Allies in WWI. Each of the opposing countries built an aviation force much greater than the US had. We stood no chance in our first Air Corps. In 1918, President Wilson created The Army Air Service, placed directly under the Department of The Military This grew quickly, soon enough they had 19,000 officers and 178,000 enlisted men. American industry created almost 12,000 planes After the war, they lost most of these men and most of the planes were demobilised. For a time, we still failed at making aircraft to compete with other countries due to the low Air Corps budget Most of the men we sent to Europe were flying French-built planes They called themselves the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) The AEF was led by John J. Pershing. The Air Corps Act of 1926 created a separate branch called the Air Corps The Air Corps stayed a small, peacetime establishment with limited funds for growth and modernisation In 1939 Hitler invaded Poland This invasion started World War II The Air Corps began to grow rapidly. Before this growth began we only had 2,000 planes and 26,000 members. Expansion of the Corps accelerated after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 The United States were propelled to war by this attack. Their newest planes at this time was the c-47 Skytrain, the b-17 Flying Fortress, and the b-29 Superfortress. We reached a peak of strength with 80,000 planes and 2.4 million people. By the end of the war, We dominated the air over Japan with our newly expanded group of more experienced Airmen. We got total victory over the Axis powers by dropping two atom bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The plane used was called the Enola Gay. The Air Force won it's independance from the other branches of the military. America was then drawn into the Cold War, where we were trying to break the barrier in Berlin. In 1955, the Air Force Academy opened in Colorado Springs Co. The Air Force then led the war against the Soviet Union. The invention of Nitrogen bombs kept the Cold War at a stand still. Strategic Air Command (SAC) held an arsenal of bombing planes such as the B-52. Like many other war planes made at this time. Boeing produced the B-52. Boeing is now the leader in producing commercial airliners. The missions done by these bombers brought the Air Force to put spy satellites in outer space. We kept a close watch on the Soviet Union through these satellites. By the 70’s The Air Force used most of their small budget to modernise planes. These new planes were the A-10 Thunderbolt, F-15, F-16, and the E-3 By 1979 the military budget started to fall back into place. Enhancing our readiness to go to war with whoever we needed to next. At this Time, research was done on how to make more stealthy planes. After the Cold war was ended when the Berlin Wall was torn down we no longer needed to keep our nuclear bombing forces on alert of the Soviets. A new stealth bomber was made called the F-117 nighthawk. In the early 90s, with no more threat of The Cold War they were able to downsize from 600,000 men to just over 300,000. Many once-valuable bases were shut down because we did not need them anymore. In the present day Air Force, we are making many advancements and attempting to create World Democracy. Our newest fighter jet is the F-35. This plane is capable of hovering and is the most advanced plane that is in use today.

Transcript: History and overview In the Air Force there are currently 329,638 active personnel When first introduced, in World War 1, airplanes were used for reconnaissance. After some time the pilots began to improvise and dropped heavy objects, as well as grenades and other types of explosives out of them to cause damage to ground targets. Small arms were also used to fire from the aircraft at other aircraft or at ground targets. Armory These vehicles can fulfill just about any need on the battlefield. They can fill roles such as bombing runs, transports, close air support and all sorts of other tasks. Most of the aircraft used by the Air Force are as follows: Attack A-10, AC-130 Bomber B-52H, B-1B, B-2 Electronic warfare E-3, E-8, EC-130 Fighter F-15C, F-15E, F-16, F-22 Helicopter UH-1N, HH-60 Cargo helicopter CV-22 Reconnaissance U-2, RC-135, RQ/MQ-1, RQ-4, RQ-170 Trainer T-6, T-38, T-1, TG-10 Transport C-130, C-135, KC-135, C-5, C-9, KC-10, C-17, VC-25, C-32, C-37, C-21, C-12, C-40.
