MADISON, Wis. — The 115th Fighter Wing of the Wisconsin Air National Guard will conduct evening training flights over the next two weeks.

While training flights typically happen during the daytime hours, a news release said crews are required to conduct nighttime training to ensure their overall readiness.

Training will happen from Monday until Thursday this week, as well as Tuesday, Aug. 31 through Thursday, Sept. 2.

Residents may see or hear F-16 fighter jets taking off or landing around 10 p.m., according to a news release.

Officials said pilots will follow flight paths that are meant to minimize the amount of noise area residents will have to deal with.
