PALMDALE, Calif. – The men and women of U.S. Air Force Plant 42 hosted Brig. Gen. Michael T. Brewer, 412th Test Wing commander, and group commanders from Edwards AFB’s main base at a director’s call June 24.

Plant 42 is now an operating location of the 412th TW. The 412th TW provides base operating support and airfield management functions to Plant 42, which hosts several contractor facilities.

Operating Location Air Force Plant 42 began its transition from Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, to the 412th TW with the initial operational capability plan taking effect May 1. The full operational capability date is scheduled for Oct. 1 to avoid making financial changes mid-fiscal year.

Some of Edwards AFB’s leadership and directors took the short trip to Palmdale for the director’s call and also to hold the weekly staff meeting there to get better acquainted with the wing’s new satellite location.

Brewer stated that as part of the 412th TW family, Plant 42 now has local one- and two-star support, resources and access to local subject matter experts. This support will help ensure Plant 42 is able to meet the many challenges it faces in having an important mission with minimal manning in many positions.

As with most director’s calls, Plant 42 award winners were recognized. Congratulations to all the award winners!
