180th plans night flights


The 180th Fighter Wing of the Ohio Air National Guard near Swanton will be conducting training flights at night through Thursday weather permitting. Area residents may see or hear F-16 fighter jets taking off and landing until about 8:30 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 Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.
