TRF additional info?


#1

I am trying to find additional info (why the TFR) for this:

tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_8_3291.html

Maps seem to show it as a ski area, and google street view shows it under construction?

Thanks,
Spinner

Clicking on NOTAM text in your link revealed.

I saw that also, just that most TFRs are somewhat more specific, and then I can find info on the web through news agencies and such additional info (fire, chemical spill).

From what I can find the CFR section refers to…
a. 14 CFR 91.137 (a) (1) Protect persons and property on the surface or in the air from a hazard associated with an incident on the surface.

So what is going on there?
Blasting? Training Ops for Police that use munitions?

Thanks,

Lets suffice it to say, the TFR is for law enforcement operations… That is all that is needed for the reason for the TFR.

One can guess many things such as surveillance operations requiring slow flight by LE officers, crime scene documentation and such.

TFR will never tell what the exact law enforcement operations are, what branch of the law enforcement agency is involved and rightfully so.

That information will be posted in just about all NOTAMS that I have seen when I get my briefings.

New Dunkin Donuts under construction.

LOL Good one! :laughing: One of my friends is a cop and he hates that stereotype so much that he always parks in the back of the donut shop. :stuck_out_tongue:
