Michael Walter Wynne (born September 4, 1944) is an American politician and businessman. He was the 21st United States Secretary of the Air Force between 2005 to 2008.

He was forced to resign because of the 2007 United States Air Force nuclear weapons incident and the mistaken shipment of Minuteman III parts to Taiwan in 2006.[1]
