Quotes

"And that's what we're really going to focus on is looking to have an air show for our anniversary," Pettit said. "That way we can justify the expenditures, and maybe get more support from the Air Force in bringing their aircraft out here."
...As Secretary James stated in her most recent appearance to congress, "the backbone of our bomber and tanker fleets, the B-52 and KC-135, are from the Eisenhower era, and our 4th generation fighters average 25 years of age. That is why our top three acquisition priorities remain the KC-46A aerial tanker, the F-35A Joint Strike Fighter, and the Long Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B). In our [Fiscal Year 2015 (FY15)] budget submission, we have fully funded these programs."
...Todd Harrison, a senior fellow who specializes in defense budget analysis at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments in Washington D C "It's something for the area to think positively about. It's good for them."
