BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) – A Navy reserve squadron is in the process of departing from Brunswick Naval Air Station, which is winding down operations.

The last of the C-130 Hercules cargo transports from VR-62 is due to depart Saturday morning. That leaves two active-duty P-3 Orion sub hunter squadrons at Brunswick.

Brunswick’s remaining squadrons will leave by December, with the 3,000-acre base due to be completely closed in 2011.
