The Nigeria Air Force is constructing Nigerian Air Force Maintenance Hangar at the force operations command in Bauchi State.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadeeq Abubakar, in his remarks at the commencement of the construction in Baluchi on Tuesday, commended the Bauchi State Government for its regular and unwavering support to the Air Force.

He said the contributions of the state government to the air force had, in no small measure,  aided the current fight against insurgency in the Northeast and other security challenges affecting the northern region.
