UNITED STATES AIR FORCE F-35A OPERATIONAL BEDDOWN
AIR NATIONAL GUARD ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT
The National Guard Bureau (NGB) has prepared a Draft Environmental
Impact
Statement
(EIS)
to
evaluate
the
potential
environmental
consequences that could result from the proposed beddown of F-35A aircraft. The NGB
proposes to beddown 18 F-35A aircraft at two of five alternative locations: 115th Fighter
Wing at Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, Wisconsin; 124th Fighter Wing at
Boise Airport in Boise, Idaho; 125th Fighter Wing at Jacksonville International Airport
in Jacksonville, Florida; 127th
Wing at Selfridge Air National
Guard Base in Harrison
Township, Michigan; and
187th Fighter Wing at
Montgomery
Regional
Airport
in
Montgomery,
Alabama. Based on an
evaluation of operational
parameters, on December 21,
2017,
the
Secretary
of
the
Air
Force
announced two preferred
alternatives for the 5th and 6th F-35A Operational Beddown as the
115th Fighter Wing at Dane County Regional Airport, Madison, Wisconsin; and the 187th
Fighter Wing at Montgomery Regional Airport, Montgomery, Alabama.
The Draft EIS is a comprehensive document that contains an in-depth description of
the proposed action and alternatives, technical descriptions of the existing conditions,
and quantitative and qualitative analyses of projected environmental impacts from
implementing the proposed aircraft conversion at any of the alternative locations. The
Draft EIS is available for review:
