RAF Menwith Hill[edit]

I am reverting the edits that removed RAF Menwith Hill from the USAF in the United Kingdom template... my justifications are as follows...

  1. RAF Menwith Hill is currently run by the 424 Air Base Squadron (ABS) which is part of the 501 Combat Support Wing (CSW). This organization is aligned under United States Air Forces in Europe.
  2. Similar to other RAF bases run by the USAF (to include Mildenhall and Lakenheath)... it is on long term lease from the MoD to conduct operations in the UK.
  3. The MoD operations going on at Menwith Hill may be in concert with the USAF, but Menwith Hill is most definitely part of the USAF in the United Kingdom.
  4. The fourth and most compelling case would be in the following link directly from the RAF website... Royal Air Force TODAY. If you scroll down to current bases, the directly administered ones controlled by the USAF have a #3 superscript and Menwith Hill clearly has one.

USAF Bases in the UK Template[edit]

Please check your facts before messing with a working template... as a member of the RAF Alconbury Wing... I am well aware that it has not been shut down. Jazznutuva 13:58, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Deactivated[edit]

The list of deactivated bases is very small considering the number of stations that the USAAF/USAF have operated from since 1941. Is their a reason why a lot are missing? MilborneOne (talk) 20:00, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
