Originally established as Langley Field, the base partially merged with the Army’s Fort Eustis in
2010 to form Joint Base Langley-Eustis. This was one of twelve joint bases formed in the
United States. Today, comprised of more than 20,000 Air Force, Army, and civilian personnel,
Joint Base Langley-Eustis is supported by the 17 counties, cities, and towns in the Hampton
Roads community. The base provides major combat airpower to the nation’s military by
operating and maintaining the renown F-22 Raptor and T-38 Talon.
