180th Overhead in Southwood: Track of Interest (TOI) Excercise

Alert fighter jets from the 180th Fighter Wing conducted a test of the Aerospace Control Alert system on Mon., Sept. 9, between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

The purpose of the event is to exercise coordination between the Eastern Air Defense Sector, Federal Aviation Administration and 180FW.

Those living in and around the Lima and west central Ohio areas may have heard and/or seen fighter jets in close proximity to a Civil Air Patrol aircraft, which will be taking on the role of a Track of Interest (TOI). A TOI is an aircraft that has been identified as a potential threat.

Aerospace Control includes maintaining air sovereignty and air defense through the surveillance and control of airspace over Canada and the U.S.

These types of exercises are conducted on a routine basis as part of North American Aerospace Defense Command’s Operation Noble Eagle, which was initiated after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
