Three-Mile Island Nuke Power Plant Fly-By
Fly-By and see the historic and infamous THREE-MILE ISLAND nuclear power plant.

You can fly VFR past the USA's most famous power plant just south of Harrisburg Intl Airport.

This is a pretty neat site, and one of the most elaborate power-plants you will ever fly near.

Caution - do not fly OVER it as the heat coming out of it will give you a really good BUMP, and besides, it may make the operators a little nervous if you hover over them!

We fly by this reactor all the time on the way east and west in Central PA and it is always a marvel of engineering to appreciate!
