The 60th Fighter Wing (60 FW) was a reserve fighter wing of the United States Air Force, stationed at Felts Field, Spokane, Washington from 1947-1950. It was withdrawn from the Washington Air National Guard (WA ANG) and inactivated on 31 October 1950.

This wing is not related to the 60th Troop Carrier Wing, Medium, or subsequent units that was constituted and activated on 1 July 1948.


The 60th Troop Carrier Wing was controlled Army Air Bases training replacement personnel being assigned to troop carrier groups and glider units fighting overseas. Inactivated at the end of the war.

In 1946 the wing was redesignated as a Fighter Wing, and allocated to the Washington Air National Guard to control ANG fighters in Washington and Oregon. It was extended federal recognition and activated on 7 December 1947. At the end of October 1950, the Air National Guard converted to the wing-base Hobson Plan organization. As a result, the wing was withdrawn from the Washington ANG and was inactivated on 31 October 1950. The 142d Fighter Wing was established by the National Guard Bureau, allocated to the state of Oregon, recognized and activated 1 November 1950; assuming the personnel, equipment and mission of the inactivated 60th Fighter Wing.
