SHAW AIR FORCE BASE Neighbors are being warned of nighttime noise through Friday as F-16 fighter pilots prepare for combat.
Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are warning residents in central South Carolina that the night flying activity will create some noise as the jets take off, land and perform specific training runs. The aircraft will be flying in restricted areas so that they dont conflict with commercial airlines.
The F-16 jets, dubbed Fighting Falcons, are used to protect troops on the ground or battle other aircraft in air-to-air encounters.
