The Headquarters Air Mobility Command (AMC) consolidated with Headquarters Military Airlift Command, effective Oct. 1, 2016. This consolidation makes AMC the oldest major command in the Air Force. Through this change, AMC received the airlift and aeromedical evacuation mission from MAC along with the air refueling mission from the Strategic Air Command (SAC). Now that MAC and AMC share one genealogical line, the history of the two organizations will remain a part of the Air Force's active history.
