7/20/2012 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Construction of the final C-130 shelter here began last week and is scheduled to be completed in August.

The shelter will be fully enclosed beginning in October, according to Henry Scheuermann, 402nd Maintenance Group Facilities Engineering Section industrial engineer.

Each will include 30 overhead lights, compressed air, and electric and communications capabilities. Construction on the steel and fabric structures began in November 2011 to provide protection from sun and rain for the aircraft and workers maintaining them.
