The pilots were from the 509th Bomb Wing.

Is this the name of the troop?

Thanks

Pretty much. "Squadron" might be more appropriate. I'd have to look it up to see where it fits in the organizational plan. (refers to heavy bombers)
Hi,

The pilots were from the 509th Bomb Wing.

Is this the name of the troop? Basically, yes. I would expect 'Bomber Wing'.

Hi,

Traditionally, at least in British terminology, a wing includes several squadrons, and a group include several wings.

I found my dictionary says so.

Thanks, Avangi and Clive.
Hi LiJ,

Google says,

The 509th Bomb Wing traces its historical roots to its World War II ancestor, the 509th Composite Group, a unit formed with one mission in mind: to drop the atomic bomb.

Sorry, man - A.

Edit. Now stationed at Whitman AFB in Missouri They fly B2's
