Redstone Arsenal to conduct nighttime helicopter training this week

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Redstone Arsenal crews will conduct nighttime helicopter operations on the evening of June 27-28.

This is routine testing and training, but community members should not be alarmed as it is occurring during nighttime hours, officials said in a press release.

The aircraft will stay in Redstone Arsenal restricted airspace until they depart the installation when the mission is complete.

Additionally, training personnel will use simulated pyrotechnics which might create flashes, loud noise or smoke during this time.

If weather or equipment issues arise, the alternate date is the evening of June 28-29.
