Minot Air Force Base Public Affairs
/ Published January 09, 2018
MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. --
The 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron will host a ribbon cutting to introduce their new, consolidated facility at Minot Air Force Base, Friday, January 12, at 2 p.m.
In 2009, the 69th Aircraft Maintenance Unit was stood up along with the 69th Bomb Squadron at Minot AFB. The 5th Bomb Wing gained 10 B-52s, along with the additional manpower to maintain these aircraft. Essentially, the 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron doubled in size, driving the requirement for a larger facility. This consolidated building will bring the men and women of the 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron together, from six separate locations, to more effectively and efficiently serve the mission of the 5th Bomb Wing.
Media interested in attending the ribbon cutting should RSVP by calling Master Sgt. Jeremy Larlee at (701) 723-6212 or email email@example.com no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, January 11. They will be asked to meet public affairs personnel at the Minot AFB Visitor’s Center at 1 p.m., January 12.
