Tyndall AFB a "complete loss" amid questions about F-22s

Anything goes, as long as it is about the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor

Prolly should have a separate thread dealing with Tyndall recovery, but here goes anyway.

As an all too often participant in surviving these storms, I cautioned all about taking the news about Tyndall with a grain of salt. Plus, I looked at the aerial recce done by NOAA and made my comments.
Tyndall elementary school opens a week from Monday. The principal said only one building was damaged too badly to use. So much for "devastating, complete loss", etc.
Local rag says "many" airmen returning already.
I hope to get more intell and may get a chance to get over to the base next week, as wife has a medical appointment at PC Beach. Her primary venue in downtown PC is still being repaired and some very expensive medical equipment is being shipped or repaired.
I still have not been able to talk with any Raptor pilots, but I'll keep on keeping on.

Gums reports...

Anyone have any word yet on the QF-16's they couldn't fly out?

Looks like this thread can eventually be shifted into the F-35 forum.

Air Force wants to house three F-35 squadrons at rebuilt Tyndall, move Raptors permanently

Smart move. F-35A basing will need new infrastructure anyway so might as well do that at Tyndall.
