- "CAG" is a US Navy term that has gained widespread recognition through films such as Top Gun and television series such as JAG. While the term CAG is technically obsolete as Air Groups are now known as Air Wings, and the position has thus been renamed to "Commander, Air Wing" (CAW) it is nevertheless still used, especially on an informal level. The term "Air Wing" is also used on Battlestar Galactica (Pegasus).
