Abstract:

The 911 Airlift Wing 911 A W is an Air Force Reserve Command AFRC tenant unit at Pittsburgh International Airport lAP, Pennsylvania. The 911 AW has proposed to demolish six of its existing Visiting Quarter VQ facilities and construct four new VQ facilities. The Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative were assessed in the attached Environmental Assessment EA. The 911 AW is currently equipped with nine assigned C-130H Hercules cargotransport aircraft. Providing both strategic, long-range airlift support to the active duty U.S. Air Force USAF and training for assigned Reservists, the 911 AW is, during peacetime, under the command and control of Headquarters HQ AFRC. In war or during times of national emergency, the 911 AW is under the direction of Air Mobility Command AMC.
