Asbestos Exposure on Air Force Bases

From the 1920s to the 1980s, many U. S. Air Force planes were constructed with parts containing asbestos, such as engines, brakes, wiring and other materials that needed to be insulated from the extreme heat. Asbestos was used in Air Force base buildings and base housing used by Air Force service members and their families.

Asbestos Exposure on Air Force Bases

Because asbestos has the ability to insulate extreme heat, it was used widely throughout the aircraft, helicopters, buildings, barracks, mess halls, and other military facilities.

Parts such as engines, brakes, wiring and other materials that needed to be insulated in aircraft and helicopters also contained asbestos.

U. S. Air Force Veterans were also exposed to asbestos working in aviation crash crews and when fighting fires and rescuing personnel from burning planes.

Asbestos was used in U. S. base buildings and base housing used by U. S. Air Force Servicemen and Servicewomen and their families.

We Do Not Sue the Military or the Government

Pericardial Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers in veterans are not the fault of the military or the government. It is, however, the fault of the asbestos manufacturers, distributors and suppliers who profited from selling asbestos to the military even after they knew of the dangers of asbestos.
