    TERRIBLE news! What if the plane crashes somewhere in the upper wildernesses? Imagine the damage done to the land with”rescue,” or of fire? And then there’s the infernal noise those war games inflict on our precious “Forever Wild” country. Why play war games over national treasure? Why play war games at all?

    We have lived with training flights for a long time. They are only over us for a short time and they are interesting to watch. I look forward to their assignment to the Vermont National Guard.
