F35 Lightning

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices | Pen Fed Realty 3107554

No not lightning as in a storm of some type, but just plain accurate and fast.  The F-35 is planned to come to Eglin AFB and replace the current 33rd Fihter Wing's 1900 personanel and their families providing the area with a net gain of 740 citizens.  I am in favor of this move by our Defense Support Initiative to bring our military F-35 Aircrafts to Eglin AFB.  First plane is scheduled to arrive by 2010. 

The plan will bring 134 pilot instructors, 66 maintainer instructors, 109 student pilots, 436 maintainer students, 30 government civilians, 150 contractors, 1,076 aircraft maintainers and 325 aircraft maintenance squardron to our area.  This totals 2,326 JSF Personnel with 1,163 spouses and 1,396 children.  This is a huge welcome to our area and the men and women who fight for our freedom.  In an economy such as ours, this will be a huge boost to the area. 

Located in Okaloosa County, FL this is the primary economic generator with over $6,000,000,000 annually generated.

Why here?  Because our area is considered a "national security treasure".  The climate, land, air, and water ranges/spaces needed to train and fly these planes make for a perfect environment.

Kelly, I lived on Eglin AFB when I was a little kid. At that time it was always interesting to see all the new types of jet aircraft. Sounds like the F-35 will bring a boost to the local economy.

Hi Michael,

Yes, I still love seeing the jets fly over our beaches.  It is a sign of freedom to me and I cannot thank the men and women who give their service to this country.  I am so happy to be living where I am.

Have a great day!

Have the planes arrived yet?  Here in Yuma, AZ we are to get the vertical take-off version, the F-35B.  It's supposed to be replacing the Harrier jet but twice the noise.  That would be lots of noise.  But with the noise should come lots of economy.
