More Jobs At Ohio Air Base Possible

Mar 29, 2013

The Mansfield Air National Guard base is getting a new mission and eight C-130H planes from the U.S. Air Force that could mean 180 new jobs.

The base last year was on a list of those around the country facing cuts. The Obama administration earlier had proposed the elimination of four C-27 J Spartan cargo planes from Mansfield as part of a plan that would have retired 200 planes and involved more than 60 installations in 33 states. But the White House said later last year The President was committed to finding a mission for the Mansfield base.
