Rep. Herrera Beutler’s statement on the wires balls:

“I applaud the BPA for making it safer to fly through the Columbia River Gorge—this measure should give pilots time to maneuver safely and make sure catastrophic incidents don’t happen. Unmarked wires are the most common fatal hazard for pilots, and we have aircraft constantly flying through the channel conducting military training, fighting forest fires and for other reasons. I appreciate the willingness of BPA to respond to my call to act quickly on behalf of our communities, and pilots who use this airspace.”
