County Offers To Host Meeting On ‘Warthogs’ Proposal

April 27th, 2023

Potter County Commissioners Nancy Grupp, Barry Hayman and Paul Heimel have once again offered the Maryland Air National Guard a venue for a public meeting on its request for federal approval to stage frequent A-10 Warthog low-altitude training flights across the region. The session would be held in the auditorium of the F. W. Gunzburger County Office Building. The commissioners said they had been approached by many constituents who are concerned about the plan. They said that providing a venue where information can be disseminated and questions answered would be in the public interest. Opposition to the proposal has been voiced by U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Congressman Glenn Thompson, State Senator Cris Dush, the Pa. Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources and other public officials and agencies. All of them are calling on the Maryland ANG to conduct a environmental impact study to address their concerns.
