Beale AFB Update

The Beale Regional Alliance has been reorganized into six sub committees to better focus the save Beale AFB effort.

The Sub-Committees include:
Mission enhancement

Rumors are circulating that the DOD is investigating moving the Global Hawk mission to another base. The DOD has let a contract for two intrim data processing stations. One for Beale AFB and one for Langley AFB in Virgina. Could the folks in Virgina be trying to capture the Beale AFB mission? On a previous round of base closings, we let Texas steal the Electronic Warfare training mission, which was scheduled to be moved from Mather AFB to Beale AFB. Is Virgina doing the same this round, trying to capture the Global Hawk mission?

More base closing information can be found on the Save Beale Web site:
