Selfridge ANG Base Reels In Restricted Airspace Proposal

Local Pilots Still Not Happy

In the battle over airspace near Detroit (MI), the Air National Guard has graciously blinked -- and yet, it may not be enough. The 127th Wing, based at Selfridge ANGB, wants to expand the Class D airspace around the base to protect aircraft making circling approaches. "It's mainly a safety issue," said Mike LaJoy, the base's air traffic control manager. He was quoted in the newspaper "Macomb Daily." The original ANG proposal, which drew the ire of the EAA and other advocates, called for increasing the entire Class D sector.

Lighting Up The Night Sky

A $5 bill was the fee to attend the dynamic light show. For that small payment four of the five categories of aircraft were represented during the hour plus show and even "Elvis" sang a few songs.
