MADISON - This week, the 115th Fighter Wing of the Wisconsin Air National Guard will be conducting training flights throughout the greater Madison area.

The flights will occur from Monday, May 7 until Thursday, May 10. Though training flights typically occur in the daylight, residents can expect the fighter jets to be taking off and landing until about 10 p.m.

Pilots and maintenance crews must conduct their operations at night for proper training.

The designated training paths were chosen to minimize noise.
