Why are some bases listed in the main list, and some listed in the "other" list? -- Famartin 23:22, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

...'k, now that this has been moved (sensibly so IMO) is it going to be US bases frequented by the US Air Force (eg Gitmo Naval base), or US Air Force bases? -- Kwantus 18:27, 19 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Isn´t Frankfurt an airbase also? Just asking.

Jacksonville isn't an air force base. I'm removing it. Mike H 01:40, Jul 5, 2004 (UTC)

Include closed bases?[edit]

There is a large number of closed US Air Force installations. See for some.

Difference between "Current AFBs" and "Other AFBs"?[edit]

I'm curious what the distinction is between current and other bases. What got my attention was the listing for Andersen AFB in the "other" list. To the best of my knowledge this is still a full, active base. --StuffOfInterest 20:40, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Air Force Academy[edit]

Isn't it Falcon Air Force Base? 16:52, 30 March 2006 (UTC)


I understand that there are unique GeoLoc (geo-location) codes associated with USAF bases. Does anyone have a reference for this information?

Naval Air Station Alameda[edit]

I've removed this because it was primarily a Navy base, not an Air Force Base. Argyriou 15:28, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

NATO air bases??[edit]

This is a list of US air force bases. NATO bases are not US exclusive. —☆ CieloEstrellado 03:00, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

No mention of Iraq[edit]

Googling ("air force base" iraq) turns up descriptions of Kirkuk, Ali, and Al Asad air bases. I don't know where these should go in the lists, and there may well be more....

Here's mention of another one: "The 20,000 troops based at Balad, home to the major Air Force operation in Iraq..." Washington Post

Those may not be classified as "bases". They could be "operations centers" or something else put in place to establish against the thought of permanency.AF Cadet & EE Student (talk) 05:27, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Just added Camp Lemonier, Djibouti[edit]

Though command of the Camp was handed over from the USMC to the Navy in 2006, the Air Force has a contingent present on the base. Just a thought, but there are going to be many more cross-service installations around the world with the new Pentagon strategy of Cooperative Security Locations and Forward Operating Sites. --Petercorless 07:26, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Da Nang[edit]

Need to add the U.S. air base in Da Nang, South Vietnam. Badagnani (talk) 20:34, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Found it at Da Nang Air Base. Would it be considered a U.S. air base? Badagnani (talk) 20:36, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

This should be retited to "Air Force Base Installation[edit]

Though this may create some confusion in respect to other types of installations, like Hurlburt Field etc, it will correct the gross error that this article causes:

Air Force installations are what the buildings/establishments inside a base are called. Places like "Base Housing" and "Pass and Registration" are installations found on every base (as per the standard formatting of bases) along with many other installations. These also should be warranted their own article, which should have the current title of this article.

All of this information is coming out of my copy of "The Foundations of the United States Air Force" Air and Space Studies 100 Air Force ROTC text (2008 edition T-107). U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE: 2008-724-790. Just another guy trying to be a Chemical Engineer, Nanobiotechnologist, and Mathematician (talk) 05:02, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

I take it back, I was mistaken. They are not titled "installations", but the article still doesn't mention the standard setup of a base, or any of the services it provides. These are important and standardized. —Preceding unsigned comment added by LealandA (talkcontribs) 05:23, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar ?[edit]

What about the base in Qatar? It's not listed —Preceding unsigned comment added by Qwartoblogspotcom (talkcontribs) 03:42, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

USAF Bases in Iran?[edit]

The map seems to show two bases in Iran that I believe should be in Afghanistan. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:16, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
