Circling Planes and ‘Touch-and-Go’ Exercises at El Paso Airport Cause Worry Among Residents
If you were in the El Paso International Airport area yesterday afternoon, you probably saw airplanes flying very low and slow in the sky. They clearly weren't following the normal landing pattern, and it seemed like there were a dozen planes following the same path. So, what was the deal with all those planes?
Turns out, there was only one plane, an American Airlines 787 that was doing 'touch-and-go' exercises. The plane would come in for a landing, and then immediately take back off. There is no word on if there will be more touch-and-go exercises in the future.
