Scott snubbed as site for new refueling tankers
MASCOUTAH (AP) — An Air Force base in southwestern Illinois won't be considered as a site for the military's next generation of aerial refueling tankers, and federal lawmakers from the state aren't happy about it.
The Air Force's potential locations don't include Scott Air Force Base near Mascoutah, east of St. Louis.
U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk and Illinois Congressmen Bill Enyart and John Shimkus expressed disappointment over the snub involving the KC-46As that Chicago-based Boeing Co. plans to begin rolling out by 2016.
