Military Flyover – August 27, 2014

The 104th FW is scheduled to conduct a practice scramble of two F-15 Eagles on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 from approximately 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The intercept mission will occur over the areas of Manchester, Lake Sunapee, and Lebanon, New Hampshire, so those communities are anticipated to be affected by increased flying activity.

Two F-15 fighter jets will train with two Civil Air Patrol aircraft. The Civil Air Patrol will be flying a low-speed civilian propeller aircraft.
This exercise is conducted to facilitate training for alert pilots on intercept procedures, ensuring the Massachusetts Air National Guard is prepared to defend the Northeast airspace against any airborne threat.

These exercises are carefully planned, closely controlled and include exercising airspace restriction violations, hijackings and responding to unknown aircraft. Communities in the mentioned area may experience increased aircraft activity during the duration of this exercise.
