The organization that develops, delivers, and sustains nearly every U.S. Air Force weapon system will be center stage July 22-28 at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024, as the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) is among the highlighted units at this year’s event.

“The Air Force Materiel Command manages installation and mission support, discovery and development, test and evaluation, and life cycle management services and sustainment for nearly every major Air Force weapon system,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programs, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions. “Those capabilities will be showcased throughout the week at Oshkosh.”

Participating AFMC aircraft and activities will be announced as they are finalized. AFMC displays will highlight the development and transition of technology, how weapon systems are tested and sustained, as well as a variety of hands-on STEM activities. The Air Force’s Band of the Flight will also perform during the week.

“Air Force Materiel Command is critical to the Air Force’s dominance and the strength of our Nation,” said U.S. Air Force Gen. Duke Richardson, AFMC commander. “Our team of driven and innovative military and civilian Airmen delivers combat power daily to ensure our nation is ready today and tomorrow. We’re excited for this opportunity to participate at Oshkosh and to show how together, we are one AFMC … powering the world’s greatest Air Force.”

AFMC is headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and includes six centers spread throughout the nation, which are integrated, collaborative, and united in their mission. The centers are the Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, Air Force Test Center, Air Force Sustainment Center, and Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center. The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force is also aligned under AFMC and serves as the national institution for preserving and presenting the Air Force story.
