Military air-intercept exercises set near Phoenix

PHOENIX -- The military will conduct air interceptions of mock hostile aircraft over Phoenix this week.

The Western Air Defense Sector exercises are set for Thursday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. They'll involve F-16 fighters, military versions of the Lear Jet 35A business jet and Civil Air Patrol planes. People in the area may see the aircraft.

The air defense exercise, code-name "Felix Hawk," is designed to test the military's intercept and identification procedures for dealing with a variety of potentially hostile aircraft.

Similar exercises have been conducted since the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The exercise will be rescheduled if there is bad weather.
