U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow applauded the U.S. Air Force announcement that Selfridge Air National Guard Base has been selected as one of five finalists for the new F-35 fighter platform. The Air Force will be making site visits early next year with a final decision to follow.

“There is no question that Selfridge Air National Guard Base is the right choice for the new F-35 platform, and it is not surprising Selfridge is on the final list for consideration. I recently spoke with the Secretary of the Air Force about how our Airmen are well-suited for a new fighter mission and the vital role they have in protecting our nation. I strongly encourage the Air Force to select Selfridge for this new mission, which will secure the future of the installation and the thousands of jobs it supports for decades to come.”
