USAF Heads For The Hills To Avoid Isabel

Aircraft Evacuate East Coast Bases

Officials at Air Force bases in the projected path of Hurricane Isabel started ordering aircraft inland Sept. 16, away from the expected strong winds.

The following bases are moving aircraft and support people inland:

  • Dover AFB, Del., to MacDill AFB, Fla., and Fort Campbell, Ky.
  • Langley AFB, Va., to Grissom Air Reserve Base, Ind.
  • Pope AFB, N.C., to Little Rock AFB, Ark., and Columbus AFB, Miss.
  • Seymour Johnson AFB, N.C., to Tinker AFB, Okla., and Billy Mitchell Field, Wis.

Aircraft from Andrews Air Force Base, Md., are also moving away from the storm.

Depending on the path the storm takes, other Air Force installations may be affected.

Hurricane Hunters from the 403rd Wing at Keesler AFB, Miss., flew aerial weather reconnaissance missions into the storm Sept. 13 and are scheduled to fly two more Sept. 17 from Homestead AFB, Fla.
