Jobs To Be Added At McConnell Air Force Base

MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kan. _ Some 40 new jobs are coming to McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita to help fill a shortfall in an Air Force Reserve unit.

Rep. Todd Tiahrt says the full-time maintenance positions will be for the 931st Reserve Air Refueling Group.

The unit is gradually adding staff to keep aircraft based at McConnell operationally ready for missions.

The positions are expected to be filled by March.

Tiahrt's district includes the base. He says ongoing funding for the positions should be included in the Department of Defense budget request later this spring.
