Land cleared to meet DoD standards, mitigate safety concerns

Approximately three acres of wooded land was cleared near taxiway alpha at Shepherd Field, 167th Airlift Wing, Martinsburg, W.Va., last month to meet the U.S. Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria which calls for a lateral clearance zone of 1000 feet from the runway. The tree clearing also mitigates potential wildlife strikes on the airfield. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Senior Master Sgt. Emily Beightol-Deyerle)
