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