Caution: Turbulence Ahead! Research from the University of Kansas School of Engineering shows that wind farms near airports create potential hazards for some aircraft. With 58 new proposals for wind farms in Kansas, this study is helping state leaders create guidelines to ensure flight safety. http://bit.ly/1b6dddz Tags: #KUworks #Aircraft #WindFarm #Kansas
