If you have just labeled this page as a potential copyright issue, please follow the instructions for filing at the bottom of the box.
The previous content of this page or section has been identified as posing a potential copyright issue, as a copy or modification of the text from the source(s) below, and is now listed on Wikipedia:Copyright problems (listing):
Unless the copyright status of the text on this page is clarified, the problematic text or the entire page may be deleted one week after the time of its listing.
Temporarily, the original posting is still accessible for viewing in the page history.
To confirm your permission, you can either display a notice to this effect at the site of original publication or send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en at wikimedia dot org or a postal letter to the Wikimedia Foundation. These messages must explicitly permit use under CC-BY-SA and the GFDL. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
Note that articles on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view and must be verifiable in published third-party sources; consider whether, copyright issues aside, your text is appropriate for inclusion in Wikipedia.
To demonstrate that this text is in the public domain, or is already under a license suitable for Wikipedia, click "Show".
Simply modifying copyrighted text is not sufficient to avoid copyright infringement—if the original copyright violation cannot be cleanly removed or the article reverted to a prior version, it is best to write the article from scratch. (See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.)
For license compliance, any content used from the original article must be properly attributed; if you use content from the original, please leave a note at the top of your rewrite saying as much. You may duplicate non-infringing text that you had contributed yourself.
It is always a good idea, if rewriting, to identify the point where the copyrighted content was imported to Wikipedia and to check to make sure that the contributor did not add content imported from other sources. When closing investigations, clerks and administrators may find other copyright problems than the one identified. If this material is in the proposed rewrite and cannot be easily removed, the rewrite may not be usable.
The 178th Wing (178 Wing) of the Ohio Air National Guard occupies 113.6 acres (46 ha) of leased land on the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport, located in central Ohio, approximately five miles south of the city of Springfield and approximately 50 miles (80 km) west of Columbus.
The mission of the 178 Wing is to train future active duty Air Force, Air Force Reserve Command and Air National Guard fighter pilots in the F-16 Fighting Falcon multirole fighter. As a training organization within the Air National Guard, the unit is operationally-gained by the Air Education and Training Command (AETC). The 178 Wing occupies 8 administrative, 25 industrial, and 6 services buildings totaling approximately 336,330 square feet (31,246 square meters) with 409 full-time personnel in either an Air Reserve Technician (ART) or Active Guard and Reserve (AGR) status. A unit training assembly (UTA), often called a "drill," is conducted twice a month and results in a surge of up to a total of 829 personnel with the addition of part-time Traditional Guardsmen (TG). Two military construction (MILCON) projects funded for construction in FY 2002 included a "Hush House" for jet engine testing and a 30,800 SF (2,860 square meter) Squadron Operations Complex.
