Increased Military Air Traffic in New Mexico?

Thurs. 12/16: This week on the KUNM call-in show, a proposal by officials at New Mexico's Cannon air Force Base to stage low-altitude nighttime training flights over northern New Mexico is raising a number of questions yet to be answered by the Air Force. Call in your comments and questions at 277-KUNM.

The flights would involve Osprey aircraft, which are used as transports, to fly as low as 200 feet during a two-hour span, three times a day or nearly 700 flights a year. Join the conversation, Thursday mornings at 8 on the KUNM call-in show.

Guests:
