Fort airfields to face ‘assault’ from Yuma-based Marines
FORT HUACHUCA — Residents of the fort, Sierra Vista and Huachuca City may see and hear a variety of aircraft conducting exercises in Fort Huachuca airspace Friday and Saturday night, a fort spokeswoman said.
Friday night, Marines from Marine Corps Air Station Yuma will conduct a mock assault of Libby Army Airfield on the post with CH-53 Super Stallion helicopters, MV-22 Ospreys and a C-130 Hercules aircraft from the Missouri Air National Guard, according to post spokeswoman Tanja Linton.
The CH-53s and MV-22s will then lift off and conduct a similar mock assault at Hubbard Air Strip on the East Range, she said.
