HOMESTEAD (CBSMiami) – South Florida fighter jet pilots are getting a work out for the next couple of days as Homestead Air Reserve Base conducts a training exercise on Thursday, Oct. 25 and Friday, Oct. 26th.

The drills, being conducted by the U.S. Air Force’s 482nd Fighter Wing, are in “exercise in preparation for an upcoming inspection,” according to the HARB website.

Residents and businesses in the South Miami-Dade and Homestead areas should expect to hear more activity, noise, and aircraft including possible sirens and the air base’s voice system during this time. In addition, the local community may hear faint sounds of gun shots and explosions in the distance from the Air Base, but remember, the exercises are only a routine drill and not a cause for concern.
