The 14.7 acre complex is the largest in the country and houses C-5 Galaxy, C-130s and F-15 aircraft. This is the first major renovation since the building was constructed in 1942. The seven-year, $75 million project is expected to be completed in 2021. Only one other similarly sized hangar complex exists at Hill Air Force Base near Ogden, Utah. The renovation includes the installation of fire alarms, fire suppression systems, a new roof, and lighting throughout the facility.

The EDGES are species keys, which incorporate pre-agreed upon levels of effects, resulting in expedited determinations of no effect and not likely to adversely affect (NLAA). There are 12 EDGES that cover 41 federally listed species in Georgia, and their listed critical habitat.
