Abstract : The Air Force proposes to convert the 72 F-4 aircraft at Seymour Johnson AFB with 72 LANTIRN equipped F-15E aircraft. The replacement would begin in January 1989 and be completed by 1991. The action would not result in an increase in overall sorties at the base, but would increase the number of operations currently flown between sunset and 10:30 P.M. from five up to eighteen per day. There would also be an increase in the number of sorties flown on selected military training routes and in the percentage utilization of total available hours at the Dare County Range. Alternatives considered included taking no action, delaying the action, constructing a new base, and using an existing base. (Cannon AFB, NM, Holloman AFB, NM, Mountain Home AFB, ID, Nellis AFB, NV, and Seymour Johnson AFB, NC were evaluated.) The preferred alternative is to make the conversion at Seymour Johnson AFB.
