MCO and GSO are being closed by December (I think, or at least by the end of the year), Junior base right now is JFK, although from what I have heard CVG isnt too far behind it. I was told to expect 2-6 months reserve in JFK before coming back home to CVG. It could get a little longer with MCO and GSO closing.

Great news!

GSO is closing September 30th and MCO will close October 31st. Also, the first set of 900's are scheduled to arrive September. The skeptic in me says that won't happen!
