The New Hampshire Air National Guard is holding a groundbreaking ceremony for a hangar to accommodate new aerial refueling tankers.

The event marking the new KC-46A hangar at Pease Air National Guard Base in Newington is taking place Friday.

The new tankers will replace the Air Force's current fleet of 1950s-era KC-135s.

Pease, home to the New Hampshire Air National Guard's 157th Air Refueling Wing, is scheduled to be the first Air National Guard unit to receive the next-generation tankers in fiscal year 2018.
