The Air Force has set a public meeting in Tucson in April to hear comments on possible future basing of the F-35 fighter jet at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, though there is no immediate plan to base the next-generation fighter at D-M.

In January, the Air Force picked Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas as its preferred location for the first Air Force Reserve F-35 base.

But D-M and two other bases that were finalists will be studied along with the Fort Worth base for their environmental suitability for an F-35 squadron, and one of them could be next in line for a Reserve F-35 unit.

The public meeting on an upcoming environmental impact study is set for April 24, from 5:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Tucson Convention Center.
