North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct exercise flights Dec. 10 in the skies over the National Capital Region (Washington, D.C.). 

The flights will take place beginning around midnight and continue into the early morning hours.  In the event of inclement weather, the exercise will take place the following day. 

People can expect to hear and see NORAD fighter aircraft, Civil Air Patrol aircraft, and Coast Guard helicopters as they participate in these exercises.

The exercise has been carefully planned and will be closely controlled to ensure NORAD’s rapid response capability. 

NORAD has conducted exercise flights of this nature throughout the U.S. and Canada since the start of Operation Noble Eagle, the command’s response to the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001.
