F-15s To Leave Tyndall Sooner Than Expected?

The following statement was made on behalf of Tom Neubauer, President of Bay Defense Alliance:

“The F15s came to Tyndall in 1983, replacing T-33. Our first 5th generation fighter, the F-22 began arriving at Tyndall in 2005 to begin a much slower process of replacing the still capable but aging F-15.

The F-22 Environmental Impact Statment anticipated a drawdown of F15s through the fiscal year 2013. This process has been accelerated as a result of 2010 defense budget uncertainties creating the aforementioned 300 aircraft option.
