A Southwest jet carrying 163 airmen will land at Keesler at approximately 12:30 pm Monday, Jan. 11. This ushers in the first historic flight to deliver basic training students to report for class by air, versus a 10-hour bus ride from Texas. Flights will continue to arrive every Monday, transporting students for in-processing at the base.
