SC air base warns of noise during nighttime training
EASTOVER, S.C. (AP) — Officials at a central South Carolina air base are warning neighbors that nighttime training scheduled for the next several days may create a lot of noise.
The training will run Monday through Thursday at McEntire Joint National Guard Base east of Columbia,
The South Carolina Air National Guard’s 169th Fighter Wing is hosting jets from the 4th Fighter Wing stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina for the exercise, 169th Fighter Wing commander Col. Akshai Gandhi said.
The base in Richland County has a large airfield and provides realistic training for a number of military units, Gandhi said in a statement.
Base officials will do everything they can to minimize noise from the nighttime training and appreciate the understanding of their neighbors, Gandhi said.
