MILWAUKEE -- The 115th Fighter Wing of the Wisconsin Air National Guard will be conducting a low-level flyover of the Deer District and Fiserv Forum for Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night, the Guard said in a statement.

Those who live in Milwaukee and the surrounding areas, as well as in Dane County, may see and hear low-flying F-16 fighter jets between 7 and 9 p.m. Tuesday.


"The 115th Fighter Wing appreciates the community's understanding as we support this historic event in Milwaukee," the statement reads.

The pilots in those F-16s will be flying for an audience of 65,000 fans in Deer District, after the Bucks expanded their footprint for the Game 6 watch party.
