Relocating West Virginia Aeromed

The West Virginia Air National Guard’s 167th Airlift Wing will be transferring its aeromedical evacuation squadron to the West Virginia ANG’s 130th AW, reports the Charleston Gazette. The 167th AW, in Martinsburg, converted to C-5s from C-130s so can no longer support the aeromed mission. The 130th AW in Charleston flies the C-130 and expects to house the aeromed squadron in existing buildings, beginning this fall, although the newspaper reports that a West Virginia Guard official said the full transfer could take several years.
