The Air Force says a number of important missions will resume at Tyndall AFB in the next few months and others will shift to other locations for the time being. All but approximately 500 Airmen will return to the Florida panhandle within 1 to 3 months after the base was heavily damaged by Hurricane Michael. The 43rd and 2nd Fighter Squadrons’ F-22 Fighter Training and T-38 Adversary Training Units will relocate operations to Eglin AFB. Personnel and F-22s from the 95th Fighter Squadron will relocate to Virginia; Alaska; and Hawaii. The Air Force is taking care to ensure Airmen and their families are supported when they return to the base.
