- A Mr Obvious statement, but BAK
is only about 12 miles from Camp Atterbury whereas IND
is about 37 miles (by ground convaence). All the convoy had to do was drive straight up US 31 and turn into the base. And IND
is a busier airport and having that C-32 fly into IND
would have caused more congestion and commotion. Flying into BAK
was much more "low keyed" and much easier for the feds and local law enforcement to get him in and out. He was not here very long and there was very little media attention placed on the story here.
