I don\'t recall any plans for anything other than C-130s for Maxwell, certainly not in the last BRAC. The USAF originally proposed to increase Maxwell by 4 C-130Hs for the BRAC, but that was canceled by the commission.

There was some various speculation prior to the last BRAC (J\'s, C-17s, etc.), but that was more rumor mongering than fact. Rumors of the elimination of the C-130s at that time was driven by the large amount of MILCON spent at MXF for the C-130s, and the tendency for BRACs to track behind large MILCON spends.

Other rumors of the C-130s leaving was driven by the rumors of the AL ANG F-16s picking up an Active Associate. That happened, but they kept the planes at Dannelly.

MXF was originally proposed to get the first AMP bird because it owned the first AMP bird. I do not know if that is still the case.
