Air Force moving planes out of Fay's way

KESSLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. (AP) - The Air Force Reserve's

403rd Wing is evacuating aircraft today from Keesler Air Force Base

to locations in South Florida and Texas.

That's a precaution to avoid heavy winds from Tropical Storm

Fay.

The storm is expected to work its way westward along the Gulf

Coast in the next 24 to 48 hours.

The 403rd Wing includes "hurricane hunting" aircraft.
