Tyndall's F-15 drawdown set

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - The Air Force plans to draw down Tyndall's two F-15 Eagle squadrons by the end of 2010. The drawdown, rumored for some time, was confirmed in an e-mail from the 325th Fighter Wing commander. Tyndall also has an F-22 Raptor squadron. Bay Defense Alliance president Tom Neubauer said that event without the F-15s, he's confident about the base's future. He says military officials have said that something "will fill that tarmac."
