United States Air Force
 
Other USAF major commands are operating in Europe either permanently based or rotating aircraft through bases. Air Force Special Operations Command has its 352nd Special Operations Wing stationed at RAF Mildenhall. Both the 9th Reconnaissance Wing and 55th Wing rotate their aircraft through Europe. These operate (mainly) from RAF Fairford and RAF Mildenhall and forward operation locations in Italy (RQ-4B) and Greece (RC-135U/V/W).
