Our PJ Rodeo Host

The 58th RQS

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


In 1952, the Air Rescue Service, expanded its existing Squadrons to Groups, and the 7th ARS became the the 7th Air Rescue Group with responsibility stretching across the mid-Atlantic to North Africa and the Middle East.

The 58th ARS was activated at Wheelus AB, Libya, assuming the mission and resources of the 6th ARS.  Flying search and rescue in the Middle East, Africa, Southern Europe, the 58th stood downrange for crewed space missions, overwater escort, and humanitarian aid for natural disasters. 

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 re-activated at Nellis AFB in 2002 as a ‘Guardian Angel’ squadron.
