Altus AFB considered for new training unit

Posted: Updated:

Altus- Altus Air Force Base is officially in the running to become the formal training unit for a new aircraft.

That's now that the Secretary of the Air Force and Chief of Staff has approved it and another base in Kansas as possible training facilities for the KC-46-A Tanker. Officials say the next step is to conduct site surveys to determine what the base will need to house the new planes.

The Air Force says the final decisions on where the training bases will be located will be made next spring.
