180th to conduct night training flights


Starting today, the 180th Fighter Wing of the Ohio Air National Guard will conduct night training flights.

The training is expected to be done each Monday through Thursday, through Dec. 13. Training should end at 9 p.m.

Area residents might see or hear the F-16 fighter jets take off and land, base officials said.

Training is usually done during the day, but F-16 pilots and maintenance personnel are required to conduct night operations as part of their readiness training.

The 180th is at 2660 South Eber Rd., near Swanton.
