Increased jet noise

The jets will be louder -- their flight paths lower.

And they could streak through the skies as late as 1 a.m.

At least, for the next few days.

The 4th Fighter Wing is currently conducting an Operational Readiness Exercise, one that ensures local airmen are prepared when their nation calls.

So through Thursday, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base officials are asking Wayne County residents to be understanding.

Other than low-level flying and increased jet noise, those outside the gates might hear loudspeaker announcements throughout the day and night, and entry and exit delays are possible at all gates.
