Aircraft and ground crew part of military training

A military aircraft is scheduled to circle Eatonville in late June as part of training that also will involve ground crews in civilian clothing and using communications equipment.
According to the town's Police Department, the plane will stay above 3,000 feet and won't be carrying ammunition.
The terrain around Eatonville reportedly is conducive to the type of training that is scheduled.
The exercise apparently isn't related to an incident in April 2015 when an unmarked, fighter-style jet roared back and forth above Eatonville at low altitude. That plane wasn't from Joint Base Lewis-McChord or any other military installation, officials said.
