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.
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.
