TUCSON, Ariz. - The F-35 could still be based at Davis-Monthan after all. The Air Force is considering Tucson as a possible reserve base for the next generation fighter.
In January, Davis-Monthan lost out to a base in Fort Worth, Texas as the first location of the F-35s. But now D-M, bases in Florida and Missouri, as well as the Fort Worth base will be studied for their environmental suitability for an F-35 squadron.
That leaves open the possibility for Tucson as the home of an F-35 fighter wing.
