Marine Corps F-18s train at Davis-Monthan

Ten F/A-18 Hornet jets from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California, arrived at Davis-Monthan Air Force on Monday evening for two weeks of training.

The aircraft, from the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, are scheduled to train here until Dec. 15, D-M says.

The twin-engine F/A-18 is generally louder than most of the aircraft that fly regularly at Davis-Monthan, including some versions of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, according to Air Force noise data.

During the training visits, the aircrews will follow all D-M arrival and departure processes and adhere to noise-abatement procedures, D-M said.
