Royal Air Force Mildenhall or RAF Mildenhall is a Royal Air Force (RAF) station located near Mildenhall in Suffolk, England.
Despite its status as an RAF station, it primarily supports United States Air Force operations and is currently the home of the 100th Air Refueling Wing (100 ARW). As RAF Mildenhall's current "host wing" the 100 ARW supports some 16,000 personnel, three geographically separated units (GSUs) and 15 associated units.
What makes today's RAF Mildenhall different from other U.S. Air Force bases is the diversity of the units assigned here. With units from four different major commands -- Air Combat Command, Air Force Special Operations Command, Air Mobility Command and U.S. Air Forces in Europe -- and a Navy presence, we have a wide variety of missions occurring simultaneously. This unique relationship requires constant coordination and teamwork. Because of this, we refer to ourselves as "Team Mildenhall."
