Skip navigation has the US Navy’s full press release regarding the closure of Naval Air Station Bermuda’s closure in the 1990’s:

BERMUDA (NNS) — Naval Air Station Bermuda officially marked the end of more than a half century of American military presence on the island with a ceremony June 2.

Navy personnel turned over all air operations to the Government of Bermuda on June 1, including weather forecasting, air traffic control, electronic maintenance and fire fighting. American military personnel have operated and maintained the island’s only airfield since 1941.

NAS Bermuda remains open until August 31. The official decommissioning ceremony was scheduled in early June because of the rapid drawdown of military personnel after the turnover of air operations. (This story appeared on Navy Wire Service as NWSA691)
