Riding the Wind; Pilots Test Aircraft Models in the Wyo Wind

We heard from a lot of viewers on Thursday who saw a jet aircraft circling around Casper throughout the day.

We were curious too, what were they doing?

We checked with airport management who told us our good wind supply was being put to good use!

Boeing and airbus are testing a new passenger aircraft models in high crosswinds.

The data collected will be used when the aircraft is put in airline service.

This is not the first time aircraft manufacturers have used Casper winds for this purpose.
