Army Gen. B.B. Bell, head of US Forces Korea, stopped by Kunsan AB, South Korea, last week on a tour of some of his command facilities and told the Wolfpack airmen that USFK would provide some money to kickstart facility upgrades, such as a new dining facility, base clinic, and library, reports SrA. Stephen Collier. Bell also noted that Kunsan is “growing more and more into a joint force base,” calling the plans to incorporate Army and Air Force units at Kunsan “into one, cohesive operation are very impressive.”
When the Air Force sets a new program baseline for the B-52 re-engining this fall, there will be “some” cost increase, because the project wasn't previously fully funded, and the Air Force has a better handle on actual supplier costs and knowledge from ground testing, program officials said.
