WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) -- Robins Air Force Base in central Georgia will soon begin doing overhaul maintenance on the C-130 airplanes flown by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
The Telegraph reports that the work will eventually create about 400 new jobs.
Brig. Gen. John Kubinec, commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex, made the announcement recently to the Houston County Development Authority.
The Macon newspaper reports that the first planes are expected to begin arriving in June, and work will gradually ramp up. By 2021, the base is expected to be doing all of the Navy's C-130 work, which will mean 400 additional jobs.
Robins Air Force Base is about 100 miles southeast of Atlanta.
