This article is about the USAF concept. For the similarly named RAF unit, see Expeditionary Air Wing.

Air Expeditionary Wings/Groups (AEW/AEG) are a Wing/Group concept used by the United States Air Force. These units are activated under temporary orders by the owning MAJCOM for a specific purpose or mission. Once the subject mission is completed, these units are inactivated.

A good source for some of these units appears to be the annual review issue of Air Force magazine.
