About Scott AFB
SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE is in Illinois. It is located about 20 miles east of St. Louis near Belleville. The Shiloh Gate entrance is 1.5 miles southeast of Interstate 64 (Exit 19A) at Route 158. Scott AFB’s primary missions are managing a domestic aeromedical evacuation system, commanding and supervising all operational support airlift within the US and providing initial qualification training for C-9 pilots. The base is also home to five headquarters and a Reserve airlift wing. In addition, there are several tenant units, some directly supporting the base, and others carrying out their own missions using Scott facilities.
During World War I, in April of 1917, this area of Southwestern Illinois was chosen to be the Midwest training base and “flying field”. The name chosen, “Scott Field,” was that of Corporal Frank S. Scott, the first enlisted person to be killed in an aviation crash. Scott’s first flight occurred on September 2, 1917, in a Standard Trainer biplane. In 1918, the base designed two air ambulances by modifying Jenny aircraft to carry wounded servicemen. Thus the beginnings of aero medical evacuation which would later become a primary role for Scott AFB. Scott Field first held its open house on August 17, 1918. Scott AFB has served as headquarters for numerous commands. Today the Air Mobility Command and the United States Transportation Command call Scott AFB home.
