12/19/2011: KC-135 Operations out of Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Air Refueling Group
The 127th Wing, Michigan Air National Guard, is based at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan, a joint DoD and DHS installation. Our mission is to provide trained, equipped and motivated tanker, fighter and support resources for the community, state and nation. The 127th Wing supports three separate Major Commands (Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command, Air Force Special Operations Command), flying two distinctly different missions in the KC-135 Stratotanker, an aerial refueler with global reach, and the A-10 Thunderbolt II, a close air support aircraft.
