Skies show jet activity

February 5, 2003

Albany-- The signs of the military buildup are everywhere-- even in the skies above Southwest Georgia. Brillant white vapor trails have criss-crossed the skies in South Georgia this week.

Dozens of jets can be seen high in the heavens, leaving trails visible for an hour. Spokesmen from Moody and Warner Robins Air Force Bases say there is no increased military jet traffic.

But both Air Bases report as many as 200 training flights are being flown everyday, keeping with the military buildup. T-38 jet trainers and C-130's are the main aircraft flying in South Georgia.

Of course, the cold winter skies make the jet trails more prominient.
