    FORT WORTH, Texas -- After publication of the U.S. Air Force’s Draft Environment Impact Study on the proposed AFRC F-35A operational beddown, a public hearing for U.S. Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas as a proposed location for the aircraft occurred on March 5, 2020.

    Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, the Air Force prepared a draft Environmental Impact Study for public review that analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with the beddown of Air Force Reserve Command F-35A aircraft, associated infrastructure, and manpower at an Air Force installation within the continental U.S. where the AFRC conducts a global precision attack mission.

    The hearing commenced with more than 80 individuals in attendance. The audience included residences and political leaders from the surrounding Fort Worth communities.

    The hearing provided a platform for attendees to understand the mission, the Draft EIS and an opportunity provide verbal or written input.

    The public’s input is valuable and assists the Air Force in making informed decisions. Comments on the Draft EIS can be provided and submitted electronically, or in writing until March 31, 2020.
