Military aircraft and personnel from the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps and Great Britain will operate out of Mountain Home Air Force Base for the Gunfighter Flag military exercise March 10-14.

Residents of Boise and Mountain Home will see and hear an increase in aircraft flying in their vicinity from 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. March 10-13, and from 1-4 p.m. March 14.

The exercise is designed to prepare multiple joint and coalition terminal attack controller teams for upcoming deployments as well as provide proficiency training for aircrews.

"This exercise epitomizes what we do at Mountain Home Air Force Base," said Col. Byron Anderson, 366th Fighter Wing vice commander. "We train combat-ready Airmen to deploy anywhere at any time and provide precision air power to our joint and coalition partners."

All training has been coordinated with the appropriate authorities.
