A HC 130J Combat King military plane begins its descent this morning onto the runway at Los Alamos County Airport. The plane, which flew from Kirtland Airforce Base in Albuquerque, conducted a training session at the local airport, County Airport Manager Cameron Humphres said. He explained that Los Alamos Airport was selected for the training because of its high altitude and short runway. The plane conducted two landings and two takeoffs at the airport.

Like a pair of sneakers that get more slippery with use, your tires lose their ability to grip the road as their treads wear down. Checking your tire treads can help keep you safer on the road. It only takes a few minutes, and some spare change.
