Requested move[edit]

U.S. Pacific Air ForcesPacific Air Forces – Proper name[1] of the USAF Major Command. --Pmsyyz 01:38, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE should call it USAF Pacific Air Forces 18:33, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, assuming no other countries have "Pacific Air Forces", which seems likely given that no other country has the sort of extensive global military presence that would lead to needing to use regional names. FWIW "USAF Pacific Air Forces" gets even fewer hits than "U.S. Pacific Air Forces". Niteowlneils 00:37, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Gene Nygaard 09:34, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, Should be called by name not by some erroneous name --EagleWSO 13:51, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support, Agree with EagleWSO. The actual name is Pacific Air Forces, and wouldn't be confused with any other "Pacific air forces."-- 00:59, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

It was requested that this article be renamed but there was no consensus for it to be moved. violet/riga (t) 14:01, 19 July 2005 (UTC)


  • Do any other countries have Pacific Air Forces? Philip Baird Shearer 17:19, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    • Not that I'm aware of. --Pmsyyz 19:55, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

Sure would like to see some historical data on the old "PACAF Special Security Flight" (aka The PACAF Honor Guard) which performed rifle drill on at least one of the old Bob Hope Christmas Specials, and which provided security for Presidential visits to Hickam, and for other visiting dignitaries such as the Shah of Iran, and Ferdinand Marcos of the Phillipines.

Deleted the line: "( in United States' government terms - the countries in this area would mostly dispute any USA 'responsibility' in respect of their particular areas)". As far as the national interests and international commitments of the United States go in this region of the world, the Pacific and Indian Oceans are, indisputably within PACAF's "area of responsibility," and I'm not sure which "countries in this area" dispute that. 00:57, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Adding the unreferenced templates[edit]

I have added the unreferenced template to a number of sections in this article . For such a large detailed article it needs inline citations. I note in the reference section it says "This article includes content from ..." Please see the articles Western Allied invasion of Germany and the Operation Matterhorn to see how the text that comes from a public domain work of the United States Government can be cited. --Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 17:53, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Now that citations have been added :-) there is another problem :-( Any books that are cited need page numbers to be included in the in-line citations. --Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 13:47, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
