(WXYZ) — People in southeast Michigan may hear fighter jets at night this week as the Ohio Air National Guard conducts training flights.

The Ohio Air National Guard's 180th Fighter Wing is scheduled to conduct training flights at night from Monday through Thursday, weather permitting.

People in the area may see or hear F-16 fighter jets taking off and landing until about 12 a.m. this week.

Training normally takes place during the day, but F-16 pilots and maintenance personnel are required to conduct night operations as part of their overall readiness training.
