The Oregon Air National Guard 142nd Fighter Wing will conduct routine night-flying training with its F-15 beginning tonight and lasting through Thursday.

The training is part of mandatory Air Force requirements and are expected to be completed each evening by 10 p.m.

The crew has flown more than 47,000 hours since Sept. 11, 2001, in support of Aerospace Control Alert as an effort to keep skies in the Pacific Northwest safe.
