Abstract:

A congressionally chartered Commission selected by the Secretary of Defense has proposed closing Pease Air Force Base AFB, New Hampshire. This proposed action will involved the deactivation of the 509th Bombardment Wing, which presently consists of 21 FB-111 aircraft, 13 KC-135A tanker aircraft, and other operational and support units. The 132d Air Refueling Squadron of the Air National Guard ANG that is assigned to Pease AFB and consists of 10 KC-135E aircraft will not be deactivated. It will remain as a stand-alone tenant to the anticipated civilian operation of the airfield. Because of a previously programmed force structure action, the relocation of the 21 FB-111 bomber aircraft at Pease AFB is not considered as a part of the proposed action. The relocation of these aircraft has been assessed in a separate environmental impact document the cumulative impacts of this action, however, are addressed in this Environmental Impact Statement EIS
