Air Force Announces 'Preferred' Basing Alternatives For F-35

Utah, Vermont, And Arizona Are The Favored Spots

The Air Force announced the preferred alternatives for operational and training F-35 Joint Strike Fighter bases Thursday.

Teams surveyed each candidate base for feasibility, timing, cost and planning purposes to meet initial operational capability timelines.

The preferred alternative locations are:

  • Operations – Hill Air Force Base, UT, and Burlington Air Guard Station, VT.
  • Training – Luke AFB, AZ.

“This is not a final basing decision,” said Ms. Kathleen Ferguson, deputy assistant secretary for installations.  “The preferred alternatives with other reasonable alternatives will continue to be evaluated in the Environmental Impact Analysis Process.”

A preferred alternative is an alternative which the Air Force believes best fulfills its mission and responsibilities, taking into consideration environmental, operational, technical and other factors.
