The turbines near the Chatham-Kent Municipal Airport pose a risk to air traffic.

That’s the opinion of one of the B-17 pilots that flew into the airport Wednesday.

Grant Schwartz landed and took off more than a half dozen times. “My reaction is… you probably need a little bit more of a margin between wind turbines and airports,” says Schwartz. “You have to decide what your priorities are going to be.”

Schwartz says on a clear day though, the turbines are a very minor concern.
