feature img

The 28th Bomb Wing (28th BW), at Ellsworth Air Force Base (AFB), South Dakota, is proposing to expand the existing Powder River Training Complex (PRTC) Military Operations Areas (MOA). The unit operates the B-1. An additional user would be Minot AFB, North Dakota that operates the B-52.

The proposed PRTC would consist of four primary MOA’s (Powder River 1, 2, 3, 4) separated by corridors, or Gap MOA’s (Gap A, B, C). Proposed altitudes are generally from 500 feet AGL to, but not including, FL 180.
