USAF to announce F-35 candidate bases in the Pacific

The USAF in November is expected to announce which bases it is considering to be the home of the first F-35A squadron outside of the continental United States.
Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, has been the front-runner for the assignment and is easily accessible by Korean and Japanese crews. And on Oct. 15, the Alaska congressional delegation sent a letter to Air Force leaders highlighting Eielson’s capability.
Other Pacific Air Forces bases considered possible contenders are Osan Air Base, South Korea, and Kadena and Misawa air bases, Japan.
