Robins Air Force Base unveiled a new airplane hangar Friday.

Intended for the base’s C-130 maintenance program, the hanger can house up to four of the transport aircraft at one time.

Robins Air Force Base performs regular maintenance on the planes, completing work on six to seven C-130’s per month before returning them to normal service.

Construction of the $24 million hanger began in late 2009, and was completed nearly a month ahead of schedule.
