Three bases want tanker

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. -- Hurlburt Field, Eglin Air Force Base and Tyndall Air Force Base are among nearly 60 installations being considered as operating bases for the KC-46A tanker, according to the Northwest Florida Daily News. Three bases will be selected initially by December, but 10 will eventually receive the Boeing-built planes, which replace the KC-135 tankers. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 06/02/12)
