Mass. Air Guard jets to practice over Vermont, N.H.

RUTLAND (AP) - Some F-15 fighter jets based in Massachusetts are practicing over parts of southern Vermont and New Hampshire in preparation for an upcoming inspection.

The fighters from the Massachusetts Air National Guard's 104th Fighter Wing will be finding and escorting non-military aircraft, such as Civil Air Patrol Cessnas, to regional airports to simulate real-world procedures.

The Massachusetts Air Guard says training is scheduled Wednesday during daytime hours.

The guard says the following communities in Vermont may experience increased aircraft activity: Rutland, Wells, Granville, Bennington, Morse State Airport, Mount Snow, West Dover, Manchester, Dorset and Pawlet.

Affected communities in New Hampshire include Keene and Claremont.
