Powder River Complex Complaints Being Handled

Nearly two years after the Air Force opened the Powder River Training Complex over the Northern Plains and strengthened Ellsworth Air Force Base's strategic importance, ranchers in the areas where the trainings occur have been impressed with the progress made in handling complaints on low flying aircraft. According to the Rapid City Journal, there is also an advisory council that was created when the complex expansion was approved to address these concerns and has also kept in touch with them to ensure that any issues are brought to the Air Force's attention quickly.
