107th Air Refueling Wing [107th ARW]
In its 2005 BRAC Recommendations, DoD recommended to close Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station (ARS), NY. It would distribute the eight KC-135R aircraft of the 107th Air Refueling Wing (ANG) to the 101st Air Refueling Wing (ANG), Bangor IAP AGS. This recommendation would distribute more capable KC-135R aircraft to Bangor (123), replacing the older, less capable KC-135E aircraft, which it would use to support the Northeast Tanker Task Force and the Atlantic air bridge.
