RAF Molesworth

23rd November 2018

The United States Government has formally notified the Ministry of Defence of their proposal to retain the Joint Intelligence Analysis Centre (JIAC) at RAF Molesworth, rather than seeking its relocation.

The decision will be accompanied by new facilities at the base and the MOD will be working closely with Cambridgeshire County Council to develop these plans.

The proposal is expected to pass through Congress shortly and is a testament to the continued relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom and will build upon our existing defence collaboration. 

Mr Vara said:

“I am delighted that RAF Molesworth will retain the Joint Intelligence Analysis Centre at its base.

The JIAC plays a key role in maintaining the UK-US defence relationship and the combined expertise of our two countries working together helps to ensure European security.

I am also very pleased that as a result of this decision by the US Government, the economic benefits to the local community will continue.
