In 1974, following House Appropriations Committee recommendations to reduce the Air Force command structure in the Pacific, the Secretary of Defense announced that Headquarters, Pacific Air Forces would be disestablished and other reductions would be made in Hawaii. The Air Force estimated that this decision would save $34 million annually plus one-time cost savings of $32 million.

Although some reductions were made, the Air Force did not disestablish the Headquarters. Opportunities exist for the Air Force to further reduce its management headquarters and related staffs in the Pacific. These reductions would achieve manpower economies consistent with a reduced force level and streamline the Air Force command and control structure in the Pacific.
