In July of 1972, the 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing moved to England AFB, flying the Vought A-7D Corsair II aircraft.  In December of 1980, the 23rd TFW traded out its Corsairs for Fairchild Republic A-10A Thunderbolt II ground support "tank-buster" aircraft.  The squadron used part of the old artillery range of nearby Camp Claiborne (closed in 1945) as a bombing and gunnery range.  Immediately following Operation Desert Storm, the U.S. Air Force closed England AFB in December of 1992 and control of the facility reverted to the City of Alexandria.
