The Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) has once again delayed plans to deactivate the 440th Airlift Wing, a reserve unit that operates 12 C-130 H2 aircraft at Pope Army Airfield on Ft. Bragg. Col.

"I am encouraged that the Air Force has finally seen the light," Republican 2nd District Congresswoman Renee Ellmers said in a statement. "While I'm glad to see the Air Force has delayed deactivation, it is pivotal that we maintain pressure so they stop pursuing this destructive proposal." Ellmers said she wants the U.S. Secretary of Defense to personally certify that deactivation of the unit would not impact military readiness.
