Military training to put more jets in Tucson skies

TUCSON, Ariz. -- It might get a little loud in parts of Tucson for the next week.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base officials said a dozen Air National Guard pilots are in town for readiness training.

They'll be conducting daily operations in their F-16s until March 21 in Tucson.

The base also will be conducting a routine operational readiness exercise through Thursday.

Davis-Monthan officials said alarms, sirens and loudspeaker announcements may be heard at residences near the base.

They said the exercises are held to ensure Davis-Monthan's airmen "maintain the highest levels of proficiency and readiness for worldwide military and humanitarian operations."
