The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) will be conducting exercise flights over the region’s skies this afternoon. Flights are expected to range as far north as Baltimore and as far south as Richmond. The flights are being conducted to test air threat response times and situations.

There will be multiple exercise flights throughout the afternoon today and will include fighter aircraft and general aviation aircraft under contract by the Department of Defense. If you manage to get some photos of the event in progress, why not drop them into our Flickr pool?

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
