Called Quail Hollow, the privatized housing development for airmen assigned to Dyess AFB, Tex., is turning heads. Dawn Davis-Spector, 7th Civil Engineer Squadron housing flight manager, tells the Dyess Global Warrior that the houses are “better quality homes than you find on base.” And, the development includes amenities such as tot lots, pools, and a clubhouse. Davis-Spector also says the developer provides “top notch” customer service and has dedicated police and maintenance personnel.
U.S. Air Force F-35s and F-22s regularly deploy deep into the Pacific region from Alaska, Utah, and Hawaii. In the future, though, the head of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command would like to see the Air Force permanently station fifth-generation aircraft west of the international date line—closer to China.
