I understand how many men constitute a US Army FAMT, fireteam, squad, company, etc, but I'm really vague on the USAF. My numerous Google searches have yielded these:

Section - 2?
Flight - 4
Squadron - 12
Group
Wing

How many aircraft (usually) are in one of these, and are VFA's (yeah, yeah, naval aviation not USAF) squadrons or groups? Thanks.

I could be wrong but i believe a flight is usually 4 planes and a squadron is 3 flights so 12 planes in all. As for group and wing elements i can't remember off the top of my head.
