USAF 50th Air Refueling Squadron moved into MacDill Air Force Base

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) 50th Air Refueling Squadron was moved into MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida on Monday Oct. 2.

The unit was earlier stationed at the Little Rock Air Force Base in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The 50th Air Refueling Squadron is made up of eight Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker aerial refueling jets and about 250 personnel.

The 50th squadron dates back to the days when the U.S. Army operated an air installation on land it turned over after World War II for what would become the Tampa International Airport.
