F-35 Strikefighter Tour
AFCEA Charleston Low Country Chapter has been invited by Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort and COL Lieblein, MAG-31 Commander, to tour their facilities and see the bed-down for the first of 70 F-35 Joint Strikefighters to be stationed there under his command. These 5th generation aircraft are the core to the Marine Corps expeditionary warfighting capabilities for the 21st century and, in addition to stealth, have extraordinary C4ISR capabilities to dominate the future battlespace.
Date/Time: Friday, 17 Oct at 1:30 PM. Meet at MCAS Beaufort front gate (off Route 21). Tour will be about 90 minutes. Get together with MARCORPS hosts at the Officer's Club afterwards.
This tour is open to a limited number of AFCEA Low Country Chapter members. Transportation arrangements to be made after the number participating is determined. POV and carpooling would be the most likely mode. The driver needs to have a military ID (ACDU or RET), passengers need ID (e.g., drivers license).
If you are interested in participating, provide your full name and date of birth (for access to the flight line) ASAP and NLT noon Tuesday 14 Oct to:
