Aircraft Return As Pax Runway Reopens

Communities surrounding the Naval Air Station Payuxent River might notice a return of US Navy fixed-wing aircraft over Southern Maryland starting today, due to the re-opening of Runway 06/24. Both Runway 06/24 and Runway 14/32 at the base have been closed for needed repairs. The re-opening will allow the station to resume flights of fixed-wing aircraft that require the runway to take-off and land.
