NORAD Headquarters, Peterson AFB, Colo. - The North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct a series of exercise training flights in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration over the Brunswick-Savannah, Ga. area May 23-28.
The exercise will involve NORAD aircraft flying at low altitudes around the Sea Island, Ga. area. During the exercise, citizens in the region may hear aircraft noise at various times, to include early morning and late night hours.
NORAD has conducted exercises of this nature throughout the United States and Canada since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 and the start of Operation Noble Eagle. NORAD conducts this training in a disciplined, professional manner to ensure its rapid response capability.
For reasons of operational security NORAD will not discuss specific details of the exercises.
