Fort Campbell Army Airfield to undergo needed repairs

Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Campbell Army Airfield’s main runway will close for repairs April 10th and should reopen in late July or early August.

The $28 million project includes resurfacing the runway, repairing ramps, taxiways, adding lights to the secondary runway, and moving lights to make them easier to maintain on the main runways.

Terry Ennis, airfield manager for Campbell Army Airfield, said the repairs also will decrease the runway width by 50 feet to the industry standard of 150 feet in width. Its overall length will decrease from 11,822 feet to 10,500 feet. The excess portion of the runways will become paved overrun that serve as a safety measure to decrease damage to aircraft on takeoff and landings if something goes wrong.

Construction equipment with suction devices that can lift concrete slabs from taxiways at Campbell Army Airfield will speed repairs to CAAF and make them cheaper since it preserves the rock subbase. The repairs are part of a $28 million contract awarded by the Army Corps of Engineers. (Leejay Lockhart, Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office)

160th Special Operations Regiment Soldiers Better Halves don’t quit

Fort Campbell Courier

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment - Soar - Night Stalkers

Fort Campbell, KY – It’s widely-known that the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) employs some of the best aviators, crew-chiefs and support Soldiers the Army has to offer. Given the nature of their mission, however, little else is known about the extensive training that goes into making — and maintaining — Night Stalkers. Not even spouses are exempt from the shroud of “need-to-know basis.”

Tuesday morning, 160th spouses arrived at the Old Clarksville Base in droves, ready to experience a day in the life of a 160th Soldier.
