Moody prepares for Hurricane Isabel

September 18, 2003

Lowndes County - Moody Air Force Base is prepared to help military installations affected by Hurricane Isabel.

The base has a partnership with several other bases along the eastern coast that allows aircraft to be stored in their hangers. Although no aircraft have flown in yet, Moody has received some inquiries.

"We've been in conversation and initial planning with several bases, both Air Force and Navy, and we're prepared to take in any air crafts they may need to fly out," said Lt. Col. John Cannafax. "We also have plans in place in case we needed to send out some of our aircraft."

The base has a hurricane evacuation plan they practice each year in May. They map out which bases they will send their aircraft to, and how many extra planes Moody can store.
