Minot Daily News
Work is progressing on this B-52 two-bay phase maintenance dock at Minot Air Force Base, shown Thursday. When completed, the $31.1 million facility will fully enclose two B-52s for maintenance. The maintenance dock is scheduled for completion in November and will support the 69th Bomb Squadron that activated at the Minot base in 2009. The Minot base has two B-52 squadrons and the other one is the 23rd Bomb Squadron. Minot AFB and Barksdale AFB, La., are the only bases with B-52s.The Minot base also is the only dual wing nuclear-capable base with its 5th Bomb Wing and 91st Missile Wing.
