7/23/2010 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- The 330th Aircraft Sustainment and 542nd Combat Sustainment wings were formally inactivated Tuesday in a ceremony at the Museum of Aviation.

The wings were inactivated July 1 as part of an Air Force-wide reorganization of wings, groups and squadrons, and their elements combined to form the Aerospace Sustainment Directorate.

Maj. Gen. Polly A. Peyer, Warner Robins Air Logistics Center commander, officiated Tuesday's ceremony. "The mission stays the same and the people stay the same," she said. "It's just some nomenclatures and office symbols change."

Peyer added there are some benefits to having combined the two wings, one of which is base leaders no longer have to explain to the public the difference between an aircraft sustainment wing and a combat sustainment wing.

Col. Chris Davis is the director of the new Aerospace Sustainment Directorate. He noted the 330th and 542nd have histories which date back to World War II, and said the ASD "fully intends to build on the heritage of its past."
