A little bit early? Way too early. Expert somewhere in April. I guess the airforce does not even know yet what they will do next month.

Rather logic when looking at the dates for Easter next year 16/17 april.
Only other option would be to do it in May 2017 with much better weather :D

According to the SIS, LA and FL ANG Eagles will be deploying to Europe this spring. If spring 2017 is preponed to March these are the most likely candidates.
