FRANKLIN-Several Navy officials visited with The Tidewater News’ staff Monday morning to discuss the Outlying Landing Field project.

Rear Adm. David Anderson gave an update on the Navy’s site-selection process and fielded questions. He was joined by Mark Anthony, director of fleet ashore readiness, and Ted Brown, media relations officer.
Three sites in southeast Virginia and two in northeast North Carolina are under consideration for the site, which pilot trainees would use to simulate night landings.
