OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Tinker Air Force Base officials gave political and business leaders and the media a look Monday at the new addition to the Tinker Aerospace Complex inside the shuttered General Motors Assembly Plant.

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and state Treasurer Scott Meacham were on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at the addition, where workers will repair and maintain engines from Air Force and Navy aircraft such as the TF33 and the F-117.

The 76th Maintenance Wing operations and other defense missions will be housed at the facility. Several operations already have moved into the building, and the 76th Commodities Maintenance Group began transferring its sheet metal shop into the building last week.
