Air base in Duluth, Minn. to get new F-16 fighters
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Air National Guard's 148th Fighter Wing in Duluth is getting new fighter planes.
Rep. Jim Oberstar and Sen. Amy Klobuchar say the base will get 18 new F-16s starting in April. The planes will replace an aging generation of F-16s that are being retired.
Both Minnesota Democrats say the new planes are a sign of the base's long-term future.
