Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Fighter Wing To Hold Night Flying Training‏

The Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Fighter Wing will be conducting routine F-15 night flying training Jan. 22-25, and Jan. 28 – Feb. 1.

The missions allow the wing to stay current with mandatory Air Force requirements.

Most training flights should be completed each evening before 11:00 p.m.

Since September 11, 2001 the 142nd Fighter Wing has flown over 37,000 hours in support of the Aerospace Control Alert mission to ensure the Pacific Northwestern skies remain safe.

Night flying is conducted almost monthly as it provides essential training for the use of night vision goggles (NVG’s) and other night time maneuvers.
