Despite its many setbacks it looks as if Open Skies sorties may be becoming a possibility. The U.S. has just approved a Russian Tupelov 214 for open skies service. The Open skies treaty was formed some years ago while it never fully took off due to Russians not meeting aircraft standards negotiated in the treaty it appears now that the U.S. in good faith has reviewed and approved their aircraft for flight. Open Skies allows for each nation to fly over the others country and observe troop movements and arms control measures. I will definitely be keeping my eye to the sky and radar as we may see some new neighbors in our airspace here soon.
