180th Fighter Wing conducting night flights


The 180th Fighter Wing of the Ohio Air National Guard will be conducting training flights at night through Thursday, May 11, weather permitting. Area residents may see or hear F-16 fighter jets taking off and landing until about 10:00 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 as we continue to train in support of our mission.
