The Oregon Air National Guard will conduct routine F-15 night training missions tonight and Thursday.
Training flights from the guard’s 142 Fighter Wing will conclude before 10:30 p.m. each night. The organization is based out of Portland, at the Portland Air National Guard Base, and employs 1,500 airmen.
“Night training allows the citizen-airmen pilots based at the Portland Air National Guard Base to stay current with mandatory Air Force requirements,” a press release from the Oregon Military Department stated. “Night flying is conducted as an essential training requirement for nighttime maneuvers.”
