The debate continues over drones at the Alpine's airport. Several hundred residents recently signed a petition opposing Alpine's airport being used for a drones test site.

For KRTS News, Natalie Pattillo spoke with concerned citizens, the researchers from Texas A&M Corpus Christi, and Mayor Avinash Rangra to find out what's next for Big Bend's airspace.

The issue will be discussed tonight at Alpine's City Council meeting.
