The units of the USAF, which were operating in Korea, were organizationally under the Far East Air Forces [FEAF], commanded by Lieutenant General George E. Stratemeyer. At the start of the war, FEAF had the following composition: the Fifth Air Force, based in Japan, had the 3rd and 38th Medium Bombardment Groups [BG], the 8th Fighter-bomber Wing [FBW], the 35th Fighter Interceptor Wing [FIW], the 49th FBW, the 347th (All Weather) Fighter Group, the separate 4th (All Weather) Fighter and 6th Fighter Squadrons, the 512th Reconnaissance Squadron [RS], and the 374th Airlift Wing. The Fifth Air Force was a powerful air army consisting of more than 1,200 combat aircraft. As of 31 May 1950, this number included 42 F-82 Twin Mustang and 47 F-51 Mustang fighters, 504 F-80 Shooting Star jet fighter-bombers, 73 B-26 Invader light bombers and 27 B-29 Superfortress heavy bombers. Non-combat aircraft at its disposal included 48 reconnaissance planes of various types, 147 C-47, C-54, C-119 and other transport aircraft, as well as 282 liaison aircraft, consisting primarily of T-6 Texans and L-4 Piper Cubs. These numbers do not include the USNAF [US Navy Air Force, staging from aircraft carriers of the US Seventh Fleet, which had 118 F4U Corsair fighters, AD-1 Skyraider attack aircraft and F9F Panther jet attack aircraft. All of this air power could take off from their bases at any minute and begin combat operations on behalf of South Korea.

FEAF Headquarters, which was located in Tokyo, had direct operational control over the UN air units. All the tactical aviation (fighters, fighter-bombers, light bombers, reconnaissance and transport aircraft) in the Korean theater of operations was subordinate to the Fifth Air Force. As the war progressed, formations from other US air forces, as well as from the United States itself (including from the National Guard and the Reserve) were mobilized to serve under the Fifth Air Force command. Strategic aviation (bombers and reconnaissance) came under the command of a specially-created Provisional FEAF Bomber Command. Not all of the aforementioned units and formations took part in combat operations in Korea; however, numerous aviation units, which had not previously been under FEAF, arrived in the theater of combat operations.
