This will impact our local economy but I am not sorry to see the US leave these bases. They were always sinister places that gave me the creeps driving past.
There was some talk of moving Marshalls plane repairs from Cambridge to Mildenhall. I guess that becomes more feasible now? Of course the negative impact of these places closing as USAF bases is a loss of thousands of local jobs It also means lettings of homes to US airbase personnel will end too.
