The Air Force Air Mobility Command (AMC) does an amazing job at supplying critical equipment our warfighters stationed all over the world. Someone sometime ago on a transport mission must have thought, "Hey, we have some extra space in here and it would be cool to fit some military families in the extra space on our way to Hawaii". Thus, the idea behind Space-A flights was born!
