Welcome to JB Langley-Eustis
Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) is a result from the unification of Fort Eustis and Langley Air Force Base in 2005. Langley is the headquarters of the Air Combat Command and home to the F-22 Raptor Demo Team. Major units stationed here include the host unit, 633rd Air Base Wing, and the 1st Fighter Wing. The joint base is located in Hampton, Virginia.
Camp Eustis was built in 1918, as a supplement facility to Fort Monroe. During World War II they helped train in anti-aircraft tactics additionally, it provided an expert source in the art of transportation across many different categories. Currently, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command is located at Eustis and deals with new weapons development. Langley also started in 1918 and is consequently one of the Air Force's oldest fields still active today. The base was quite the pioneer of aviation and related fields; aerial photography, the precursor to NASA, the National Advisory Council for Aeronautics, and dirigibles all got their start here. Throughout WWII and the Cold War, Langley proved to be an important defender of the east coast.
