Low flying planes over Ocean county skies in Nuclear drills

More than 12 fixed-wing and rotary aircraft with radiation detection capabilities will be flying low in the Ocean County skies for the next several days, according to a notice from the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration. Air operations for the third Interagency Aerial Response WINGS Exercise will begin on June 21 and allow local, state and federal aerial assets in the Northeast region of the United States to improve radiological response techniques into a larger, unified response, the release states.

Air operations will be managed out of the Ocean County Airport in Berkeley Township.

Low flying, fixed-wing and rotary aircraft will be in the area of the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station between June 21 and June 23, the notice states.
