This is why I find it odd that MacDill AFB is not on the short-list for the F-35 Foreign Military Sales Training Center (i.e. Singapore) As it has all of the benefits that Tyndall has..........

Most of the shortlisted bases currently host few or no permanent flying units, and none of them are currently earmarked to operate F-35s in the future. It will take significant capital to set up an F-35 FMS training facility because existing infrastructure will need modifications to support the fifth-generation stealth fighter’s operations.

MacDill would also have access to the same training ranges as Tyndall......
