Airplane to make low-level flights over parts of northern Utah

Utah residents should not be alarmed to witness a low-flying airplane over parts of northern Utah during the next two weeks.

Beginning on July 20th and lasting about two weeks, an airplane monitored by the U.S. Geological Survey will begin collecting and recording geologic measurements over parts of northern Utah in Box Elder County.

Scientific equipment is mounted to the aircraft and is designed to map geologic structures beneath the land surface. This analysis is part of an ongoing USGS federal research program to identify physical occurrences such as changes in rock types, ultimately providing a better understanding of the geology and hydrology of the area.

It is controlled by experienced pilots who are specially trained for low-level flying and operated by Firefly Aviation Ltd., Calgary, Alberta, Canada, which is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure flights are in accordance with U.S. law.
