Welcome to the USAFpatches.com Gallery, the centerpiece of this website featuring 25,000+ embroidered, leather, PVC and silk-screened patches patches representing organizations, exercises, competitions, classes, weapon systems, and installations from the USAF 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 patches that exist. Gallery images come from the Webmaster’s or visitor’s personal collections. For more information on the gallery, please go the Gallery Overview.


DONATIONS OF ACTUAL PATCHES ARE ACCEPTED AND APPRECIATED, PLEASE VISIT THE DONATION PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

   8th Airborne Command and Control Squadron
This patch was the first to be used by the unit, and dates from the period during which it was based at Langley AFB flying EC-121 aircraft.  I could find no record of its official approval, or of its even being submitted for such, but it wouldn't have passed muster anyway because of the "8" (numbers or letters within the design area are specifically prohibited).  Nevertheless, the emblem subsequently approved for this unit retained three of the elements used on this patch (globe, flash, and aircraft symbol), as well as the same basic colors and general layout and look.
