Vermont Air National Guard to do night flight training
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Air National Guard will start doing night flight training this week.
The Guard says residents may see and hear F-35 aircraft taking off and landing at the Burlington International Airport starting on Tuesday. The trainings are scheduled to end before 8 p.m.
The night flights will run through Friday, Nov. 22.
The Vermont Air National Guard received the first two F-35s in September and is scheduled to receive 20. It’s the first guard unit to receive the next-generation fighter.
Some area residents think the F-35s are too loud and worry about their presence in a suburban area.
