SANTA RITA, Guam-The U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps will conduct training on the island of Farallon de Medinilla on Oct. 15 from 12noon to 8:30pm and Oct. 17-19 from 10am to 7pm.
The general public-especially fishermen, commercial pilots, and marine tour operator-are advised to stay clear from the area during the times and dates indicated.
The general location of the training on the island of Farallon de Medinilla training area will be on a 10 nautical mile radius on all quadrants. Farallon de Medinilla plays a special and unique role in national defense because its location provides access frequency that supports established training requirements. In addition, the air and sea space in the Farallon provides sufficient room for the many different attack profiles necessary to replicate training opportunities in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
