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?
