Aloha Jim,
 
Just to let you know we are going after the new MTR , Military Training Route for Air Force C-17 on the island of Hawaii,
 
County Council will listen to the presentation at the Hawaii County Council meeting at the Sheraton Kona May 21 around 830am.  The public is invited.  Whoever is there could attend and share testimony "against It" and they got 3 minutes..
 
C-17 will fly low altitude at 400 mph, coming into Honokaa, then over Waikoloa, then over to Kona to south point...
 
This is unsafe, unneccessary and desecrates the sacredness of these islands people, culture and sites.  There are so many other reasons, why they are not wanted here...
 
People are mobilizing and I for one made a statement in the West Hawaii Today sunday news...
 
Please let many of our friends know of this blatant action by the Air Force.
 
Mahalo,
 
Reynolds Kamakawiwoole
