U.S. Air Force to Host Open House | Events
The U.S. Air Force is replacing some of their primary refueling air crafts and with the change they are considering where to house the replacements. Fairchild Air Force Base is on the list of potential new homes for the KC-46A aircraft. But before the U.S. Air Force makes a final decision they are holding open house meetings to educate the surrounding communities about the aircraft.
Locally, the open house will be held at the Lincoln Center in Spokane on April 16th. The purpose of the event is to educate the public on the move of the KC-46A aircraft and to give them a chance to ask questions about the impact it could have. There will be no formal presentations made, but Air Force personnel will be on hand to answer questions. Public comments and input are encouraged as it will help the Air Force make a more informed final decision.
Community members can visit the open house any time between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm that day. More information on the project can be found at www.KC-46A-beddown.com
