Toledo Air National Guard Unit Performing Exercise Flights to Test Response Capability

(Swanton, Ohio) – Alert fighter jets from the 180th Fighter Wing will conduct a test of the Aerospace Control Alert system on Friday, Jan. 30, 2015, between 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

The purpose of the event is exercise coordination between the Eastern Air Defense Sector, Federal Aviation Administration and 180th Fighter Wing alert aircraft.

Those living in the areas in and around Columbus, Dayton, Middletown and Clark County, Ohio may hear and/or see fighter jets in close proximity to a Civil Air Patrol aircraft, which will be taking on the role of a Track of Interest (TOI).

Although they are scheduled for the morning, the exercise flights could be delayed due to weather concerns.

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.
