Air Force officials said Truax Field Air National Guard Base in Wisconsin and Dannelly Field in Montgomery, Ala., are the preferred locations for the squadronsBoth sites must go through an environmental analysis before the selection is finalized. “This is a huge announcement in the life of the river region and the great state of Alabama and I am honored to share it with each of you today,” Alabama GovKay Ivey said during a Thursday press conference announcing the selection. Alabama and Montgomery officials had sought the project during the lengthy selection process to preserve 1,400 jobs at the air field and add more jobs with the arrival of the new fighters. The Air Force said it expects the F-35s to begin arriving in both states in 2023 — first in Wisconsin and then in Alabama. “Selecting Truax Field and Dannelly Field will increase Air National Guard F-35A units providing 5th Generation airpower around the world,” Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson said in a statement. “As F-35As arrive at these locations, we will use the existing aircraft at these fields to replace the aging F-16s at other Air National Guard units.” The aircraft will become part of the Montgomery-based 187th Fighter WingThe unit carries the name of the “Red Tails” in honor of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, the famed-all-African-American unit who trained in nearby Tuskegee and shattered aviation and racial barriers in World War II. Alabama and Wisconsin beat out locations in Idaho, Florida, and Michigan that were also competing for the project. try { _402_Show(); } catch(e) {} COMMENTS Business FCC proposes $13.4M fine for Sinclair NEW YORK (AP) — The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a $13.4 million fine on TV-station owner ...
