CAMP RIPLEY — The idea of unmanned aircraft flying overhead might make some Minnesotans a little uneasy, but Capt. Eric Lewanski said there is nothing to worry about when it comes to Camp Ripley’s new Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations Facility.

“They don’t leave Camp Ripley,” Lewanski said. “We have a lot of area to fly around.”

Camp Ripley opened its newest facility to the public Friday to show off its $3.9 million, 53,000-acre training facility.
