Comment Period Reopened on F-35 Proposal

The wrong address was listed on the original notice.

The U.S. Air Force is still looking into Davis-Monthan as one of the bases where it might deploy the F-35 fighter. While the Air Force's preference is to station the jets in Fort Worth, Texas, the Tucson base is one of three backup sites.

The Pentagon has added a new 10-day comment period for its proposal because of a typo in the original notice. An incorrect mail address was listed, so the comment period was reopened until Aug. 27.
