Base

Fort Smith and the surrounding communities make up a rich, vibrant area with the right talent, resources and air space to make this crucial mission for the United States an absolute success. We have demonstrated long-term support for the military and for flight operations in particular. Ebbing Air National Guard Base has been operating since 1953 and has exactly what this mission calls for… and more.

The 188th Wing location is uniquely equipped to handle the FMS F-35s and RSAF F-16s. Its unrivaled bombing range, airspace, hangars, maintenance bays, ramp space, airfield, and united community support make it an ideal, cost-effective long-term home for F-35s and F-16s.
