Tanker assessment nears at Grand Forks base

Posted: Updated:

A federal survey team is to visit Grand Forks Air Force Base later this month to assess its potential to host an air refueling tanker mission.

The base is 1 of 4 being considered for the new active-duty KC-46a tanker mission. The others are in Oklahoma, Washington state and Kansas. The Air Force plans an announcement in the spring after on-site surveys.

Local officials plan to tout the Grand Forks base's many assets, including its previous history with flying tankers and its new mission with unmanned aircraft.
