A new study that discusses the use of land surrounding Fairchild Air Force Base was released recently by base officials.
The Air Installation Compatible Use Zone study explains changes in air traffic as a result of Fairchild losing its B-52 bombers and becoming the nation’s largest KC-135 facility. It discusses what structures, developments and operations in the civilian land surrounding the base are compatible with those flying patterns.
The study is available at the Airway Heights, Medical Lake and main Spokane libraries, and at the planning offices for those cities and Spokane County. More information is available by calling Capt. Mark Brown at 247-5704.
