Andersen's location gives Air Force a strategic advantage in the Pacific

  • Published

Andersen is a strategically located, forward main operating base in the Pacific. The constant rotation of Andersen has an impressive roster of aircraft that are housed here throughout any given cycle. In 2008 alone, Andersen has been a temporary home to airborne warning and control system, B-2s, B-52s, F-15s, F-22s, cargo, tankers, and a variety of naval aircraft. The base is postured to support operations across the spectrum of conflicts and provides extraordinary flexibilities for the Pacific command.
