VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Congressman Austin Scott toured Moody Air Force base Thursday and said he hopes to bring more missions and more planes to the base.
 
 
"We will be working to bring additional smaller missions to Moody because we're 8 to 10 years from the F-35 coming off the assembly line," Scott pointed out. "Our score is good at Moody for the F-35 and we have every reason to believe that we'll receive the F-35."

Congressman Scott also held a brief question and answer session after he finished speaking.

On April 30th, the South Georgia Military Affairs Committee will head to Washington D.C. to meet with Pentagon officials to discuss Moody's future.
