Holloman Air Force Base receives money for new project


OTERO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – Holloman Air Force Base will be getting a lot of money for a new project.

Senator Martin Heinrich announced $85 million to build a new operations facility that will house three MQ-9 attack squadrons.

The squadrons are the training units for new pilots and sensor operators for the remotely piloted aircraft, one of the faster-growing missions in the military.

Heinrich says the investment will help to create jobs at Holloman.
