    @Jura

    The US Navy is probably moving those aircraft because of the damage done to Florida in the last hurricane season. Since F-35C numbers are more limited they decided to move those to a safer location. But allegedly the USAF is moving the more numerous F-35A variant to Florida so...

    The USAF plans to reopen Tyndal at some point in the near future. The base will however be then F35 centric.

    The Navy move has different rational.
    Tyndal will likely be rebuilt to a higher standard than before.
    This report is different.
    Basically the Navy is consolidating F35C training to the west coast. The squadron in question is the training squadron for F35C which is based on the east coast.
    This was done because the USAF had F35A models already and invested in the training infrastructure there. So to save time they basically piggy backed into the USAF training.
    Now the Navy has there own infrastructure in California ready to go so they are closing the Florida ops for now and shutting down the squadron as they orient to building operational squadrons for the F35C fleet introduction.
