  • Task Force Raptor completes mission

    Within five days of Hurricane Michael devastating Tyndall, the five-person Task Force Raptor leadership team from Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., and Tyndall Air Force Base conducted an initial assessment on the remaining F-22 Raptors. Following this assessment, the team was confident the Raptors would fly. Moore credits her leadership team of Chief Master Sgt. Eric Butts, Senior Master Sgt.

  • Deployed security forces Airmen ensure safety of DOD assets at Bagram

    In a deployed environment, security forces Airmen perform a unique mission that differs from their traditional roles at home station.

  • 325 Munitions Flight : Moving ordnance and the mission forward

    In the four weeks since Hurricane Michael swept through the gulf coast and Tyndall Air Force Base, the 325th Maintenance Squadron Munitions Flight, with the help of munitions Airmen from across the Air Force, have assessed their munitions facility for damage and are now moving their mission forward. The Airmen have been busy since their return. Their initial priority was damage assessment and accountability of all the ordnance on Tyndall. The damage to the facility included four collapsed buildings. Once the initial damage assessment was complete they began moving munitions out of the deteriorated facilities with the help of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Airmen.
  • One month after Michael

    A month ago, Hurricane Michael upgraded from a category two to a category four hurricane overnight. In an effort to keep the base’s most important assets safe, its people, Col. Brian Laidlaw, 325th Fighter Wing commander released an evacuation order. With exception of the ride-out team, comprised of nearly 100 Tyndall members, everyone left. Among the mix of those remaining were first responders, base leadership and command post personnel. The initial assessment of the aftermath was bleak, but in the weeks since, the outlook has taken a turn for the better. The base has built back up to more than 2,000 personnel with nearly half on the ground originally from Tyndall.

    Commander Air Combat Command Gen. James Holmes gave high-fives and fist-bumps to the members of the 965th Airborne Air Control Squadron as they lined their hallways for his visit Nov. 1.

  • Army, Navy provide Tyndall much-needed support

    While Hurricane Michael created catastrophic devastation to most of Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, the relief efforts were an instant reminder of the symbiotic relationship between military branches. In the days following the storm, the Air Force came in droves to provide support with the Navy and Army not far behind. Engineers from the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133, Gulfport, Mississippi, and the 46th Engineer Battalion, Ft. Polk, Louisiana, hit the ground running. They traveled in convoys bringing with them construction vehicles and equipment. Unable to bring everything they would need, they also planned to have contracted vehicles meet them at Tyndall.
  • Base Defense Airmen secure Tyndall

    Airmen from the 822nd Base Defense Squadron, Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, are always primed to deploy at a moment’s notice to secure and defend bases around the world. On October 11, 2018, that moment came. However, they weren’t traveling to faraway lands to set up security in foreign territory—they were driving to Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, to protect a base that had been ravaged by a category four hurricane one day prior.

  • Prime BEEF aids in hurricane rebuild

    Airmen from all over the country have joined Team Tyndall on the road to recovery. For some, the call of duty comes from right next door. Airmen from the 23d Civil Engineering Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force Squadron, Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, narrowly escaped the wrath of Hurricane Michael themselves and were some of the first to come to Tyndall’s aid. The Prime BEEF Airmen arrived at a battered Tyndall on October 16, 2018, and immediately set to work to build tents, restrooms, showers, and shaving facilities for Airmen who had previously been bedding down in unoccupied offices, fitness centers, and hallways.
