"On Sept. 14, flight lines will be very quiet at Air Combat Command bases. The entire command -- about 100,000 active-duty airmen -- is standing down training flights and many other operations as part of a command-wide safety day."
This is in response to USAF accidentally moving some nuclear missiles around a couple of weeks ago.
I can entirely understand why they're doing it, but shutting down the major North American chunk of the air force for a day just seems surreal.
