coin packaging14th Flying Training Wing, Columbus AFB, MS

The USAF Columbus AFB coin commemorates the exceptional staff and facilities of the 14th Flying Training Wing which since World War II has trained only the finest Air Force pilots—the elite—and which continues with that mission today. Fully one half of the pilots in the Air Force today went through basic and primary flight training at Columbus AFB. Not surprisingly, Columbus AFB is home to the busiest military air traffic control facility in the world.

Columbus Air Force Base began as an advanced twin-engine flying school prior to World War II, and trained more than 8,000 flight students who became US Army Air Corps Officers. The base continued to train pilots during the Korean War, then became home to a KC-135 tanker and B-52 bomber squadron. Since 1969, Columbus AFB has carried out the mission for which it originally was activated—training the best Air Force pilots.

The obverse of this special Columbus AFB challenge coin shows the 14th Wing emblem, over the banner “14th Flying Training Wing.” Circumference printing describes their mission: “Day and Night—Peace and War,” and “Columbus AFB, MS.” The coin is highlighted in rich enamels, the reverse featuring the US Air Force emblem in striking blue and white.
