Unprecedented No Fly Zones In Effect In US

The table below is a list of  Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) copied from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) website. The twenty-two restrictions are all  for  “Security” and are in effect during the last week of July, 2011.

This is an unusually large number of TFRs.  Previously, between March 2008 and the current period there have been only nine other Security TFRs; and those were general in nature covering Washington, DC  and airspace over large sporting events.

What is happening this week that requires these measures?

One thing stands out. Grand Forks Air Force Base is slated to receive 10 of the new Global Hawk Block 40 aircraft. Maj. Gen. Thomas Andersen, who oversees acquisition of weapons systems for the Air Force,  said the first one could arrive by July.

The Global Hawk is an unmanned reconnaissance aircraft (drone) with advanced capabilities and range.
