Redesignated 6th Air Division in Feb 1951,
the organization experienced several inactivation and activations, but its
mission remained one of organizing and training assigned units for sustained
long-range offensive bombardment and air-to-air refueling operations around the
world. The division also supervised numerous deployments, exercises, and
operations. In the 1960's, units under the control of 6th Air
Division participated in Arc Light missions and controlled aircraft flying
weather reconnaissance missions in Southeast Asia.
