The Air Force Association noted “with the utmost regret” the resignations of Secretary of the Air Force Michael Wynne and Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley on June 5 (see above). In a statement, AFA said both men “made significant contributions” to the Air Force during their tenure. AFA Chairman of the Board Bob Largent said “their visionary leadership in articulating legitimate Air Force requirements is precisely what our Air Force needs during these challenging times.”
The Air Force overall reduced its size by 120 aircraft in fiscal year 2021, but kept about the same number of fighter, bomber and attack aircraft, according to data supplied by the service. The F-35 fleet saw the biggest increase while the B-1B bomber fleet saw the largest decline.
