A part of Montana is subject to a temporary flight restriction from the FAA



Havre, Montana — On Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration briefly shut down and then reopened the airspace over the town of Havre.

The following announcement concerning the closing of the airspace near Havre was made shortly after by North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD):

“NORAD detected a radar anomaly and sent fighter aircraft to investigate. Those aircraft did not identify any object to correlate to the radar hits. NORAD will continue to monitor the situation.”

The Federal Aviation Administration has provided relatively few facts about the object, however, the Montana Congressional Delegation has made a number of remarks regarding the sighting.

Sen. Jon Tester wrote, “I am aware of the object in Montana Air Space and remain in close contact with senior DOD and Administration officials. I am closely monitoring the situation and am receiving regular updates. I will continue to demand answers for the American public.”

U.S. Rep. Matt Rosendale wrote, “Airspace is reopened – I will remain in contact with defense officials and share more information as it becomes available. Montanans deserve answers.”
