SAN ANTONIO – Are you hearing a loud sound hovering over your home in the middle of the night?
According to Joint Base San Antonio, it’s nothing to fear. The 149th Fighter Wing is performing night training operations for F-16 student pilots until 10:30 p.m. each weeknight through Thursday, April 21.
The overnight flights will allow the student pilots to better prepare for the challenges of night flying, according to officials. These trainings will also benefit other pilots and maintainers as they “prepare for all hours of the day and night,” the 149th Fighter Wing said.
Residents who live near JBSA-Lackland will be the most likely to hear the nighttime flights.
If you have any questions, you’re urged to call the Public Affairs office at 210-925-7772.
