Some Air Force heraldry looks good, some not so good. Here is a PDF link for those who may have not seen the "Guide to Air Force Heraldry."

In my opinion, most of the best USAF heraldry is that designed prior to the creation of the USAF as a separate service in 1947. The self-image of the Air Force as being futuristic (translate: "let’s throw away all this historical stuff") hasn’t been conducive to good heraldic design.

And the oh-so-serious rules put out by the AF historical office people who govern USAF emblems haven’t helped—they’ve abolished both the dark tones of traditional symbols (references to gambling, luck, death, and destruction) and the bright ones (the whimsical cartoon-style squadron badges of WWII) from Air Force heraldry and left nothing but the blah and uninspiring middle ground.

 

Thank goodness not all of the old stuff has been tossed out the window. The modern-day designers never would have come up with something as evocative as this, originally designed for a troop carrier squadron that dropped paratroopers into battle—note the kitten’s fully extended claws, ready for a fight.

I agree to a large extent with Joseph McMillan the post 1947 designs tend to be not that great as regarding to heraldry. But there are as always exeptions and thankfully many old designs has been carried on.

50th Fighter Bomber Wing as used 1954-56, is an example of what I see as accepteble Heralry created post 1947.

 

However the 50th Tactical Fighter Wing as it become changed its emblem in 1956 to this:

The 50th TFW was succeded by the 50th Space Wing who in 1992 took bace to Opinicus Arms of the World War II 50th Fighter Group. With the Motto Changed to reflect the new Space Role.
