Mission Statement

  The 169th Fighter Wing is the primary unit of the South Carolina Air National Guard and is located at McEntire Joint National Guard Base. The 169th Fighter Wing flies the F-16 Fighting Falcon, a single-seat multi-purpose fighter with the capability to fly at up to twice the speed of sound. The mission of the 169th Fighter Wing is to provide world class combat capability to meet our nation's needs for contingency and general war requirements.
Our primary federal mission is accomplished by employing conventional munitions in the Destruction/Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (DEAD/SEAD), while providing 24/7 homeland defense alert fighter response. Additionally, the wing provides to the Governor of South Carolina with defense assistance to the state's homeland security office and disaster preparation and response support for Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) activities.
