WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita is
relocating 16 aerial refueling tankers because a series of storms
could pelt the area with hail.
Base spokeswoman, Lt. Jessica Brown, said Saturday that the
KC-135 Stratotankers were being moved to Grand Forks Air Force Base
in North Dakota.
She described the relocation as a precaution, noting the planes
would be costly to fix.
