KBJR: US lawmakers continue push for F-35 jets in Duluth
Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- There's a renewed push for the Air National Guard unit in Duluth to get a new aircraft.
Today, Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, along with Representative Rick Nolan, announced they are continuing their support for a new F-35 Fighter jet to join the fleet in Duluth.
In a letter to the Air Force Secretary, lawmakers say the modern facilities at Duluth International Airport, along with a large amount of training airspace make Minnesota a perfect place to assign the F-35.
The Air Force Secretary will continue work to decide where to send the fighter aircraft.
