LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- Luke Air Force Base is hosting Idaho's 428th Fighter Squadron and a contingent from the Republic of Singapore for nearly two weeks of flying exercises.

Flying will take place at the base and the Barry M. Goldwater Range complex in southwestern Arizona through Dec. 15.

Base officials said the areas around Luke and the range may experience more noise than usual as a result of the increased air activity and the types of aircraft involved.

The aircraft will include F-16 Fighting Falcons, F-15E Strike Eagles, CH-47 Chinooks and AH-64 Apache helicopters.

There will also be an increased military presence along Highway 85 south of Gila Bend.

Officials say the exercises will provide the Singapore armed forces an opportunity to train their full spectrum of command, control and execution.
