MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Madison-area residents may hear military aircrafts at night this week and the next due to training, the state Department of Military Affairs reports Monday.

The 115th Fighter Wing will have evening flights until around 10 p.m. daily from Sept. 13-16 and again the 20-23. Residents may see or hear F-16 fighter jets taking off or landing.

The Wisconsin National Guard noted training flights normally occur during the day, but pilots and maintenance staff are required to have night flights as part of their training.

Pilots will also fly specific paths to minimize noise, the National Guard added.
