The Alternate Range—Maybe

There’s a news report in the Korea Times that says USAF pilots in South Korea, principally those flying out of Osan Air Base, may have a new training range soon, courtesy of the South Korean air force. (DR, 10/19/05) The bad news is the South Korean air force has to regroup its training sites and reschedule its training. However, South Korean defense officials say that’s not a problem. We probably will never know if the letter-writing campaign by USAF pilots greased the sticky wheels of international cooperation.
