Air Force seeks to demolish 5 percent of its infrastructure to save billions of dollars over next 30 years
from Stars and Stripes
The Air Force wants to demolish 5 percent of the infrastructure in place across its 180 bases worldwide as the service rethinks its approach to maintaining its buildings, runways and silos, among other structures, officials announced. The new infrastructure strategy would shift the Air Force from its approach of spending money to fix its structures in the worst shape to primarily investing in preventative maintenance throughout a structure's life cycle, said Jon W. Henderson, the assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy.
