Goldsboro and Wayne County residents can expect low-level flying and excessive noise Tuesday morning around 9:30.

The 4th Fighter Wing's F-15E Strike Eagle Demonstration Team is scheduled to practice its routine.

The team, which performed in front of its home crowd for the first time at last year's Wings Over Wayne Airshow, is preparing for its upcoming tour, including a May 12 show at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.

Last year, the team traveled across the globe -- to Italy, Holland and Canada -- and was praised.

The team is led by Capt. Al Kennedy and Weapon Systems Officer Capt. Jack Stallworth.
