MAFB Gets $4.6 Million Project| 5/17/2012
Senator John Hoeven announced the project today. "Military construction funds are extremely limited this year, and much of the Air Force`s construction plan has been pushed back due to fiscal constraints," he said. "I am very pleased that the committee is able to provide funds for this project at Minot Air Force Base. It will allow for smoother maintenance of equipment critical to B-52 operations and enable our airmen to continue to perform their mission at a very high level."
According to Hoeven, the facility houses maintenance operations for the B-52 transport trailers. The current facility is undersized and demands for trailer maintenance will grow with the stand-up of the new B-52 squadron.
