U.S. Air Force Academy Board of Visitors Meeting
Pursuant to Section 9355, Title 10, United States Code, the U.S. Air Force Academy Board of Visitors will meet at the United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado, 28 & 29 April 2006. The purpose of the meeting is to consider the morale and discipline, curriculum, instruction, physical equipment, fiscal affairs, academic methods, and other matters relating to the Academy. A portion of the meeting will be open to the public while other portions will be closed to the public to discuss matters listed in Paragraphs (2), (6), and Subparagraph (9)(B) of Subsection (c) of Section 552b, Title 5, United States Code. The determination to close certain sessions is based on the consideration that portions of the briefings and discussion will relate solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of the Board of Visitors or the Academy; involve information of a personal nature, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy; or involve discussions of information the premature disclosure of which would be inconsistent with protection of the predecisional process by frustrating frank and open discussion. Meeting sessions will be held in the Superintendent's conference room, Fairchild Hall, USAFA, CO.

Notice of Intent To Perform an Environmental Assessment for the Retirement of the F-117A and T-38A Aircraft and Beddown of the F-22A at Holloman Air Force Base, NM
The United States Air Force is issuing this Notice of Intent (NOI) to announce that it is conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) to determine the potential environmental consequences of a proposal to transform the combat capability of the 49th Fighter Wing and maximize the use of available infrastructure at Holloman AFB by replacing the retiring F-117A aircraft and T-38A aircraft supporting the F-117A mission with two F-22A squadrons. The Air Force has identified Holloman AFB as the preferred location for the third operational wing of the Air Force's F-22A Raptor, which would enhance the low observable, precision weapons system capability of the 49th Fighter Wing. The EA for the proposed action will be prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321- 4347), the Council on Environmental Quality NEPA Regulations (40 CFR 1500-1508); and the Air Force's Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) (Air Force Instruction 32-7061 as promulgated at 32 CFR 989). As part of the proposal, the Air Force will analyze the following actions at Holloman AFB: Retire F-117A and T-38A aircraft currently based at Holloman AFB. Beddown and operate two F-22A aircraft squadrons. Renovate existing facilities and construct new facilities to support the F-22A squadrons. Adjust base manning to reflect F-22A beddown requirements Conduct F-22A training routinely in airspace within 100 miles of Holloman AFB, to include supersonic operations. Expand chaff and flare use in military airspace. Alternatives meeting the underlying purpose and need of the proposed action, if any, will be developed during the EIAP process. This process includes gathering information from the scoping meetings.
