Airfield partially opened at Sierra Army Depot
McDonald said the overall construction of the airfield has been broken up into three segments, with the airstrip expansion being the first phase.
“It’s been broken up into three phases,” McDonald said. “(First) the expansion, the next part would be the instrument lighting and the expansion on the apron, and then the third phase would be putting in a tower.”
McDonald said the air traffic in and out of the army depot wasn’t going to be as bad as it was right after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. She said SIAD generally has to work around the schedule of the U.S. Air Force planes that come into SIAD. She explained if flights were not available, the depot would have to go with other means of transportation, either via trains or trucks. McDonald said trucks are still the most widely used shipping transportation for the depot.
As for the airstrip, McDonald said flights will only be scheduled during the day, as the instrument lighting along the runway has not been built yet.
McDonald also said that just because there have been a lot of planes being seen coming in and out of the airstrip area, it doesn’t necessarily mean SIAD has increased in activity. She said National Guard personnel out of Reno and Stead, Nev., have been using the airstrip regularly as well.
