Kansas Base Selected by Air Force

usairforce(AP) – Wichita’s McConnell Air Force Base has been selected to be the main operating base for the Air Force’s new KC-46A air refueling tanker.

Members of the Kansas congressional delegation issued a joint statement Wednesday announcing the Air Force decision. The aircraft will replace the aging KC-135 fleet flown by crews for the past 50 years.

According to the delegation, the Air Force will base 36 of the new aircraft at McConnell starting in 2016. It also will be investing $192 million in upgrades to the base.

McConnell was chosen over bases in North Dakota, Oklahoma and Washington.

Forbes Field in Topeka was not selected as a site for the Air National Guard base but the delegation said the Topeka location would not be precluded from future refueling assignments.
