RUNS=1:09
OUT Q=plenty of time


((First, the good news. Traffic is once again flowing freely along the Hershberger Road ramp onto 581 in Roanoke.
So, if you take that exit there's no need to leave early or make that U-turn onto the southbound ramp anymore.
But, in other parts of Roanoke County, the news is not so good.
Work to widen Route 613 and fix underground drainage pipes along Route 907 begins tomorrow.
The construction is slated to continue until September 10th, but until then Route 907 or Ranchcrest Drive will be shut down to through traffic. take pinnacle board
Also, in Bedford County-- there will be some delays due to resurfacing on route 24.
Now for a re-cap of some on-going problems around the region you'll want to be aware of..
Construction is continuing on Route 460 in Christiansburg.
Avoid the area if you can, if you can't you'll run into possible delays. take pinnacle board
Also, construction along route 220 near the Roanoke Franklin County line continues to cause major delays. If you plan to take this route leave early.))

Stealth-Flight

The first test flight of the F-22 advanced stealth fighter was a success today.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Marietta, GA


After more than three months of delay the stealth fighter took an hour long flight in Georgia.
The "rapture" as it is being called will replace aging F-15's.
The new plane is faster, needs less support by other aircraft and has a computerized cockpit to improve pilot's reactions in combat.
The stealth fighter will need more practice runs before it is actually ready for combat.
More than four hundred of the jets are expected to be built by 2010.
And if all goes as planned the first F-22 stealth is expected to be ready for combat in 2004.
