NORAD Flight Exercise Planned For Washington, D.C.

Flights To Begin After Midnight Tuesday And Continue For Two Days

North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct a three-day exercise, Falcon Virgo 10-06, beginning Tuesday and ending Thursday in the skies over the National Capital Region (Washington, D.C.). There will be two flights per night on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the first flight scheduled to take place between 0000 until 0200 EDT and the second between 0400-0600 EDT. There will be one flight on Thursday, which is scheduled between 0000 and 0200 EDT.
 
In the event of inclement weather, the exercise will take place the following day. People can expect to hear and see NORAD fighter aircraft, Civil Air Patrol aircraft, and Coast Guard helicopters as they participate in these exercises.
 
The exercise has been carefully planned and will be closely controlled to ensure NORAD's rapid response capability. NORAD has conducted exercise flights of this nature throughout the U.S. and Canada since the start of Operation Noble Eagle, the command's response to the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001.
