|Just got wind of this one through the engine community.
New Orleans is an ANG F100-PW-220 centralized maintenance location per BRAC 2005. I guess they're increasing numbers through civilian contracts too.

Realigning F100 engine maintenance from Tyndall and Jacksonville into a CIRF at New Orleans (ANG unit) establishes a southeast region CIRF that will service F100 engines for up to 96 F-15 aircraft of active duty and Air National Guard aircraft, complimenting other Air Force recommendations that increase New Orleans and Jacksonville to an optimum 24 aircraft squadron size. The Air Force considered both New Orleans and Jacksonville for the southeast CIRF, but analysis indicated New Orleans would require less construction than Jacksonville due to existing maintenance facilities.

Good opportunity for anyone (or someone you know) from an F100 base that is loosing it's aircraft or transitioning to something else? Maybe closing all together.
Be sure to let your F100 engine buddies know!
