Powder River nixes supersonic exercise over Bowman

March 09, 2017

Residents within the expanded Powder River Training Complex can expect some busy skies next week.

The Combat Raider exercise scheduled for March 14, 15 and 16 will continue as planned. But the Ellsworth Air Force Base announced last week that the large force exercise that was associated with this event has been canceled.

All training activity associated with Combat Raider will be contained in the Powder River 2 Military Operating Area and the Gateway West Air Traffic Control Assigned Airspace.

During this time, additional military training will still be conducted within areas one through four of Powder River.

Because the large-force portion of the exercise will not take place, no supersonic activity is planned.
