DOD officials expect to complete “general” implementation plans for BRAC 2005 by February 2006. This is the big one, per Philip Grone, deputy undersecretary of defense for installations and environment. It comprises more than 800 installations across the country. Grone says there will be more than 241 implementations plans—each with its own pace and cost structure. He believes DOD will complete all necessary actions in time to meet the BRAC deadline of 2011.
The Air Force overall reduced its size by 120 aircraft in fiscal year 2021, but kept about the same number of fighter, bomber and attack aircraft, according to data supplied by the service. The F-35 fleet saw the biggest increase while the B-1B bomber fleet saw the largest decline.
