The 58th RQS

The 58th Rescue Squadron, located at Operating Site Alpha, Nellis AFB, Nevada, is one of five squadrons commanded by the 563rd Rescue Group at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ.

History of the 58th RQS

In 1952, the 7th ARS became the 7th Air Rescue Group with mission responsibilities ranging the mid-Atlantic to North Africa and across the Middle East, and the 58th ARS was activated at Wheelus AB, Libya.

Flying search and rescue in the Middle East, Africa, and Southern Europe, the 58th was downrange for crewed space missions, overwater escort, and humanitarian aid missions. 

Wheelus AB and the 58th were deactivated in 1969, after a coup led by Muammar Gaddafi replacing the Kingdom of Libya with the Libyan Arab Republic.  

The 58th ARS was later re-activated at Nellis AFB in 2002, as a Guardian Angel Squadron.
