180th Fighter Wing to conduct night training flights

The Ohio Air National Guard’s 180th Fighter Wing is scheduled to conduct training flights at night beginning Tuesday, Feb. 20, through Thursday, Feb. 22, weather permitting. Area residents may see or hear F-16 fighter jets taking off and landing until about 9 p.m. this week.

Training flights normally take place during daylight hours, but F-16 pilots and maintenance personnel are required to conduct night operations as part of their overall readiness training. The 180th Fighter Wing appreciates the continued support from the citizens of Ohio and Michigan during continued training.
