The only ops still going (last I knew, but I'm not up-to-speed on Griffiss) was RADC (but that isn't actually ON the base) and missile control. I heard some years ago that missile control was closed as part of some treaty signed about 20 years ago. There isn't much to Griffiss. It's very large but the biggest reason for that is due to the fact they had the B-52's and the air refueling wing there. They needed a ton of room for them. I saw some planes on satellite that are still there. My guess is they are national guard or part OCA but they looked military. I know that base by heart and I was never even stationed there. It's just from living there.

Paul- Reading your comments tell me you dont even live here anymore and you know no crap. "my guess is they are national guard". Sorry, we do not have national Guards here. They are in Syracuse. The planes you saw that seems military are the 747's that MidUSA Air are repairing. We have them here to repair planes. Don't speak for us if you no longer live here. Thank You!!!!!

And, RADC? Totally wrong. We have NORAD here and they are actually on the base. We also have air force lab here. Thank you again.

Do us, Romans, some favor....stay out if you know no shit.

Military planes do hang out in Rome occasionally. They are usually from National Guard units training at Rome using C-5's and C-17's. Actually.

As I said, I'm not up-to-speed on Griffiss. I did say that those planes could be private.

The "air force lab" you speak of is RADC. And I must say you are a very angry person. Nothing that I have said so far warrants the amount of anger you have on the subject.

Oh, ok. I can't imagine what they may be researching with so many military cut-backs. That's a great job opportunity, though. Get a B.S. in something applicable and start making the big money.

there are c5s that get repaired in the same vicinity as midairs 747s you speak of... they can be seen from the road. so you are both sort of right. there are multiple MROs in operation in those hangars. so... yeah.
