Michigan - A 9,000-foot section of M-28 in the Upper Peninsula played host
to a history combat training exercise on Wednesday, June 29.

While military aircraft have landed on U.S. highways before, this was the
first time they landed on a highway and then were quickly refueled and

"integrated combat turns," or ICTs, and is a vital part of the U.S.
Air Force's Agile Combat Employment doctrine, of being ready to execute
missions quickly and in unpredictable ways.
