C-130Js to stay at Keesler

The Air Force has abandoned plans to transfer C-130Js from Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., and deactivate the 815th Tactical Airlift Squadron. That’s according to a release from Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss. Palazzo said that since he first learned of the plan three years ago to move the 10 C-130Js, he has worked with Sens. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., and Roger Wicker, R-Miss., to ensure that would not happen. He said in the release that "today the Air Force made the right decision" to keep the C-130Js at Keesler.
