Military Jets Set To Expand Range

People in parts of the region have grown accustomed to the sound of military jets flying overhead. 

The Oregon Air National Guard wing based at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls puts planes into the air on a regular basis for training runs. 

The boundaries of the training maneuvers are clearly defined, but will expand under the Oregon Airspace Initiative

The initiative spent several years putting together the environmental documentation to change the limits.  With the Final Environmental Impact Statement recently published, we get details from Stephen Bomar of OANG and Bob Skinner of the Ashland airport.
