Air National Guard assists with air traffic control
from WSAU-AM via WTAQ-AM
If you were on a commercial flight that went over Wisconsin the past ten days, you might have a soldier to thank for landing safely. The Air National Guard's base at Volk Field in Juneau County is one of several Midwest air traffic control centers that have helped keep the skies safe, while the radar center near Chicago has been down. An arson fire closed the Aurora, Illinois, facility on Sept. 26, interrupting numerous Midwest flights and halting service at Milwaukee and Chicago for the better part of two days.
