Are you sure that one is 19th AW? 19th AW is the AETC wing at Little Rock, and, as such, has 'AETC' in its tail, not 'AMC'.

(463rd AG is the regular AMC airlift group at Little Rock).

Nice list! Wish I'd had the opportunity to visit last week...

Best regards,

Stephan

19th AW = AMC
314th AW = AETC

463rd AG deactivated in 2008!

74637 C-130J-30 AMC/19 AW The Rock
AMC and white tailband "the Rock" definitely makes it 19 Airlift Wing.
Not sure about the current tailband colors, but it seems that black/yellow in the Scramble Orbat is no longer correct.
The C-130J have tailbands in white (41 AS ?) and green (61 AS ?).

314 AW is AETC and on the C-130J they seem to have adopted a new blue/yellow/blue tailband with a sword and parachutes, much alike the formal wing emblem.
