    Our Mission Statement ...

    To project and protect the image of the United States Air Force and United States Space Force within the global entertainment environment.

    We started by raising our 'Wings' ...

    The original public affairs office was created by Air Force Material Command, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, in 1947. Then, Captain William C. "Andy" Anderson was reassigned from Wright-Patterson AFB to Los Angeles, California, as Information Officer to deal with the interest surrounding test flights and aircraft production in the area. We did not work on Hollywood movies at the time, but after a short while, Hollywood studios and producers prevailed upon the office to arrange filming at area installations and aircraft factories. Hence, the mission of the USAF Information Office was modified to include motion picture support. Capt Anderson left in 1948 to fly in the Berlin Airlift and later penned numerous military-themed books, one of which, "Bat 21," was made into a movie in 1988.

    Since then, continuing cooperation has resulted in support to hundreds of films and television programs: "Sully", "Bridge of Spies", "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," "Aloha," "Man of Steel," "Godzilla," "Lone Survivor," multiple "Transformers" and "Iron Man" films, as well unscripted programming like "Inside Combat Rescue," "Air Warriors," "Mighty Planes," and "MythBusters," among others. We have also supported music videos, video games and comic book projects. Today, this strong relationship with the industry continues to bring military stories to life that entertain and inform the public.
