Pease AFB named as first ANG KC-46 base

Air National Guard plans for new tanker

Pease Air National Guard Base in New Hampshire has been announced as the first ANG main operating base for the new Boeing KC-46A Pegasus tanker. Pease has a strong Active Duty association, which is expected to lead to a lower Active Duty manpower requirement, plus it is located in a region of high tanker demand. It should start receiving aircraft in 2018.

The formal training for the KC-46 at Altus AFB and the first Active Duty main operating base at McConnell AFB will begin receiving aircraft in 2016 according to current plans.
