Heat Causes Multiple Flight Delays in St. George
The excessive heat in Southern Utah isn’t just rough for residents, it’s also rough for public airlines.
Thanks to high temperatures reaching over 110 degrees over the weekend, multiple flights at St. George Regional Airport had to be delayed.
Hot air can cause a degradation in air density, and planes can’t stay in the air as well without the proper air density.
The air density should be more suited to planes since temperatures will slowly but surely lower throughout this week.
Don’t Worry, it’s Just a Training Exercise
Residents living in the Bloomington area of St. George took to social media on July 17 to report a sighting of multiple military helicopters.
The helicopters were part of the Red Flag 23-3 training exercise from the Nellis Air Force Base. Multiple aircraft will launch every day from now to August 4.
If you end up hearing a loud booming noise or see any unexpected military aircraft, there’s a good chance it’s just part of the training exercise.
Fun fact about Stockton Myers, the writer of Sunrise Stories.
Stockton is very addicted to Diet Pepsi. He swears it’s not an issue, but it’s definitely an issue. He has to set reminders for himself to actually drink water, so that he can actually be...you know...hydrated.
