Dyess Air Force Base made history Thursday.
A second wing is now active there.
The 317th Airlift Group was given the ‘wing’ title.
Dyess personnel said about 1,200 airmen work in the unit and it employs C-130 combat power.
The C-130 is one of their aircrafts.
Dyess staff said the 317th wing’s scope and size demands the new title.
