Air Guard could move to Mountain Home
Question of the Day
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Air National Guard could move from Gowen Field to Mountain Home Air Force Base if President Obama’s budget proposal to Congress becomes law.
The Idaho Statesman reported Wednesday that the Air Force plans to eliminate its entire fleet of A-10 Thunderbolts, which totals 107 planes assigned to Gowen Field and three other bases around the country. Gowen has 22 of the planes.
Gowen Field’s 22 A-10s account for the Idaho Air Guard’s entire fleet of aircraft, and employ about 1,000 people. About two-thirds of those people are part-time reservists who work one weekend a month and two weeks a year.
The Idaho Air National Guard worries that moving its operations an hour’s drive from Boise will hurt its ability to recruit and retain reservists.
