About a week or two ago, someone had a post on here about chaff being dropped in California that was interfering with weather radar.

"NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN FRANCISCO CA 441 PM PDT FRI APR 16 2004
NOW ... THE LONG STREAMERS OF HIGH REFLECTIVITY APPARENT ON DOPPLER RADAR ACROSS THE BAY AREA ARE BEING CAUSED BY CHAFF...SMALL PARTICLES RELEASED DURING A MILITARY EXERCISE. PLEASE DISREGARD THESE RADAR RETURNS. "
He asks the good question: "Anyone out there have a clue why there's chaffing going on in an area with three active commercial airports?"

We have seen a lot more activity here in TN as well.
What was shocking to me was some weeks ago there were fighter jets flying all around the city, landing that the commercial airport and taking right back off.
After asking around and reading some local reports I was informed that what we were seeing was terrorism training.
I asked a friend who works with the TN Air National Guard and was told that it was a training drill and the goal was to shoot down a hijacked commercial Jetliner.
I think I'll just drive or take the bus now.
