Explosive exercise planned at Elmendorf

Posted: Wednesday, November 14, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Numerous explosions will be heard in Anchorage Thursday.

Not to worry.

It will only be a military exercise at Elmendorf Air Force Base.

Between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Elmendorf's explosive ordnance disposal team will set off more than 800 ground burst simulators.

Base officials said the noisy devices are used to simulate bomb explosions during training exercises.
