Military plane training to move closer to Wasilla

Posted: Thursday, February 03, 2011

ANCHORAGE — Wasilla Mayor Verne Rupright says he and others are concerned about how an expanded military training area could affect the most populated areas of the Mat-Su Borough.

KTUU reports the plan calls for an increase in training for C-17s and F-22 Raptors that could have the planes flying as low as 500 feet.

The boundary for the expanded Fox 3 Military Operations area would be slightly north of Wasilla.
