Abstract : The U.S. Air Force proposes to continue using the Valentine Military Operations Area (MOA) in southwest Texas for supersonic operations. The 49th Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW) at Holloman Air Force Base (AFB), New Mexico, has been flying supersonic operations above 15,000 feet (ft) mean sea level (MSL) in the MOA since January 1985. The majority of the operations will continue to be conducted in the F-15 aircraft. Occasionally, other fighter aircraft may use the airspace but their usage is negligible in comparison to the F-15s, and consequently, would result in no appreciable change from the evaluation and analysis for the F-15 aircraft.
