Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Residents of Fort Campbell, Clarksville and Montgomery County may notice increased activity and noise levels at Sabre Army Airfield starting April 10th, 2017, when Campbell Army Airfield closes for repairs.

The repairs will last until the end of July or beginning of August, and during that time C-17s and smaller fixed wing aircraft such as C-130s will use Sabre. Larger aircraft, including C-5s and 747s will use space Fort Campbell has arranged at Nashville International Airport for operations.

The flight path for aircraft landing at Sabre takes planes over Outlaw Field at Clarksville Regional Airport as they descend to Sabre. So, people who live and work in the vicinity of Gate 1, especially Gardner Hills, should expect increased levels of noise.

Sabre Army Airfield normally serves rotor wing aircraft such as these AH-64 Apache attack helicopters parked on a ramp across from the runway March 30, 2017. However, in coming weeks fixed wing aircraft such as C-17s will make use of the runway while Campbell Army Airfield undergoes repairs. (Leejay Lockhart, Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office)
