I'm sure there is some nuance to this. Basically security at Creech will no longer be under the "99th" (Nellis) but rather under a commander at Creech. The base is currently soliciting bids to increase security at the RPA (remotely piloted airplane) portion of the base. They have acquired all the private land bordering the base on the east side of route 95.

Considering UAV (or RPA if you prefer) warfare should be winding down with the upcoming withdrawal from Afghanistan, expanding of Creech seems a bit odd.

Googling the 799th ABG doesn't bring up anything relevant other than this video.

I'm willing to bet a new UAV is out of test phase and active. Need a place to house them?

Edit: Notice how the first Colonel says Air Combat Power and not recon power??? lol. I bet they got a new plane!

I think you are on to something here. In addition, it is likely to be armed rather than just recon. You can do recon in a lot of places, but Creech is handy for live fire.

Nothing on their units page yet.

Nothing in their news feed or Nellis news. Since the DoD provided the video, I have to assume no press was at the event. I checked the usual Vegas papers and TV websites and found nothing.

Yeah where did she go? She seemed to know quite a bit about planes.

A C-12 out of Holoman just landed at Creech today.
