AF seeks to demolish 5 percent of its infrastructure to save billions of dollars over next 30 years

A new infrastructure strategy would shift the Air Force from its approach of spending money to fix its structures in the worst shape to primarily investing in preventative maintenance throughout a structure’s life cycle, according to Jon W. Henderson, the assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy, who spoke at the Pentagon on Friday, March 22, 2019.
