VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta could soon be home to a new generation of stealth fighter jets.
Moody is one of six bases under consideration to house the F-35 Lightning.
The jet has been in development for over ten years and will replace F/A 18 Hornet.
The new jet will be equipped to carry an array of bombs and missiles, a new digital radar warning systems for countermeasures and a design that will minimize radar signatures.
An environmental study will determine if the jet will come to Moody or a base in South Carolina, Alaska, Utah, Florida or Idaho.
It's expected to enter service in 2010.
