Best way to summerise would be to say that a wing would contain usually two or more units either at the same location or performing simular roles but
located at different bases grouped together for administrative purposes.
Three examples i can give are 82 Wing in the RAAF has all the F-111's under it's control at RAAF Amberley in two sqns, 1 & 6 which are both at the
86 wing is based at RAAF Richmond but controls transport aircraft located at Amberley (38 sqn) and Richmond (36 & 37 sqn) flying three stypes of
aircraft, DHC-4, C-130H & CC-130J
41 Wing is a non flying wing at present and controls 1 Radar Surveillance Unit at RAAF Edinburgh, 3 Control and Reporting Unit at RAAF Williamtown,
No. 114 Mobile Control and Reporting Unit at RAAF Darwin and Surveillance and Control Training unit at RAAF Williamtown. Its soon to also have 2 sqn
with the 737 AEW&C under its control.
