SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — A 'Welcome Home' of sorts took place Tuesday afternoon for KC-135 aircraft from Sioux City's 185th Air Refueling Wing. The Iowa Air National Guard jets and staff returned home after operating at bases in Kansas and South Dakota since April. The completion of substantial runway improvements at Sioux Gateway Airport brought a long-awaited return to normal operations for Air Guard members. During their time away, the guard continued to provide air refueling support for domestic operations while operating remotely.
