Members of North Dakota’s congressional delegation say they have been officially told the Air Force will create a new squadron of B-52 bombers at the Minot Air Force Base.
That will add 10 active bombers to the base, bringing the total to 22, and hundreds of personnel. The economic impact to the area is estimated at $75 million.
Senior Air Force leaders are creating a new command to better manage the nation’s nuclear arsenal after a series of embarrassing missteps in the handling and oversight of its most sensitive materials.
Air Force Secretary Michael Donley told reporters Friday that the service is shifting its nuclear-capable bombers, missiles and staff into a new Global Strike Command. So far officials have spent more than $200 million on the reorganization effort, and expect to spend another $270 million during the fiscal year that began Oct. 1. But Air Force leaders could not provide a total cost or staffing for the new command, which will be led by a three-star general.
