2 F-15 planes cancel drills over 2 states

The Associated Press

CONCORD - Military officials say training exercises for fighter jets over parts of New Hampshire and Vermont have been canceled due to scheduling conflicts.

The two F-15 fighter jets were to run simulations Wednesday over Lebanon and Concord and parts of Rutland, Vt.

The fighter planes and pilots are attached to the 104th Fighter Wing headquartered at the Barnes Air National Base in Westfield, Mass. The jets were to train with two Civil Air Patrol aircraft flying at low speed.

It helps trains pilots who would be scrambled in the event of an airborne threat. The drills include reactions to airspace restriction violations, hijackings and responding to unknown aircraft.

On Wednesday night, the Vermont National Guard will have a multi-aircraft departure from the 158th Fighter wing.
