Release Number: 021007

Residents near Shaw Air Force Base may notice increased noise activity during evening hours through Oct. 15-18 and 21-25 due to a temporary increase in the number of F-16 flights after sunset. 

These flights provide Shaw F-16 pilots with the opportunity to train with night vision equipment and practice tactics that are critical to survivability in combat.
