Unlike a full-scale emergency exercise training in 2023 involving numerous area first responders, fire companies and law enforcement, this exercise was planned by the U.S. military. It is closed to the public and the media due to "safety concerns," the county said in a statement.

Frontier Airlines is the only commercial airline with daily flights from Trenton-Mercer.  The New Jersey Air National Guard has moved its facility to the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

There are approximately 85,000 take-offs and landings each year, according to the airport website.

Note: This story was updated that the NJ Air National Guard no longer has a presence at Trenton-Mercer Airport.
