Pemco's Birmingham, Alabama, facility has received the first USAir Force Boeing KC-135 tanker under an interim agreement to augment maintenance capacity at Boeing's Aerospace Support Center in San Antonio, Texas, and the USAF's Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center. Boeing replaced Pemco as KC-135 depot-level overhaul provider in 1999, but the two plan to sign a six-year contract by September.
