U.S. Air Force celebrates 70 years

With the U.S. Air Force being founded in 1947, it celebrates it's 70th birthday Sept. 18, 2017.

SAN ANGELO, TX - Sept. 18, 2017 marks the 70th birthday for the U.S. Air Force. According to military.com, the Air Force was founded in 1947. 

But the history of using aircrafts in the military started way before 1947. The U.S. Military bought it's first aircraft in 1909 but the Air Force itself didn't exist as it's own branch back then.
