Welcome to the USAFpatches.com Gallery, the centerpiece of this website featuring over 30,000 embroidered, leather, PVC and silk-screened patches patches representing organizations, exercises, competitions, classes, weapon systems, and installations from the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Space Force and its predecessor organizations. While the Gallery is one of the most comprehensive compilations of U.S. Air Force patches available, it is by no means complete. The patches pictured are only a small percentage of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force patches that exist. Gallery images come from the Webmaster’s or visitor’s personal collections.

 506th Strategic Fighter Wing; Top Strategic Air Command Strategic Fighter Wing 1956
Nicknamed Operation Left Hook, the first and only SAC fighter competition was held from 25 October to 14 November [1956]. Five strategic fighter wings competed, with each wing entering 36 F-84s. Although the requirement for all wings was the same, only one wing at a time flew in the competition, which was staged out of Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska. The top wing in the competition, Second Air Force's 506th Strategic Fighter Wing, won the newly established Auton Trophy.
