403rd Evacuates From Keesler

KESSLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. (AP) - The Air Force Reserve's 403rd Wing is evacuating aircraft today from Keesler Air Force Base to locations in South Florida and Texas. That's a precaution to avoid heavy winds from Tropical Storm Fay.

The storm is expected to work its way westward along the Gulf Coast in the next 24 to 48 hours. The 403rd Wing includes "hurricane hunting" aircraft.
