The Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs says about 50 aircraft and nearly 1,000 personnel from the National Guard, Air Force, Army, and Navy participate in the annual Northern Lightning Counterland training exercise at Volk Field Combat Readiness Training Center.
The training runs from August 10-21.
“This exercise will include potential supersonic travel, within FAA and military guidelines, so people in the military operating area, a 55 by 200-mile space, may hear sonic booms between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 pm during weekdays,” Van Roo said. “We appreciate everyone’s patience as it is a necessary part of the preparation for actual combat.”
Those living in the following counties can anticipate increased military flight operations in the airspace: Adams, Brown, Calumet, Clark, Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Jackson, Marathon, Marquette, Monroe, Outagamie, Portage, Sauk, Sheboygan, Trempealeau, Waupaca, Winnebago, and Wood.
