Air Force makes final basing decision for next two Air National Guard F-35A bases

F-35A Lightning IIs will begin to replace many of the older fourth-generation aircraft but the Air Force will continue to fly a mix of fifth and fourth-generation fighters into the 2040s. This will allow the Air Force to maintain enough fighters to meet combatant commander requirements, provide required training, and allow a reasonable and uninterrupted deployment tempo for the force.
