Military training to put more jets in Tucson skies

TUCSON, Ariz. — It might get a little loud in parts of Tucson for the next
week.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base officials said a dozen Air National Guard pilots
are in town for readiness training.

They’ll be conducting daily operations in their F-16s until March 21 in Tucson.

The base also will be conducting a routine operational readiness exercise
through Thursday.

Davis-Monthan officials said alarms, sirens and loudspeaker announcements may be
heard at residences near the base.

They said the exercises are held to ensure Davis-Monthan’s airmen “maintain the
highest levels of proficiency and readiness for worldwide military and
humanitarian operations.”
