Web Producer: Mekita Rivas
TUCSON (AP) - It might get a little loud in parts of Tucson for the next week.
Davis-Monthan Air Force Base officials say a dozen Air National Guard pilots are in town for readiness training.
They'll be conducting daily operations in their F-16s until March 21 in Tucson.
The base also will be conducting a routine operational readiness exercise through Thursday.
Davis-Monthan officials say alarms, sirens and loudspeaker announcements may be heard from residences near the base.
They say the exercises are held to ensure Davis-Monthan's airmen "maintain the highest levels of proficiency and readiness for worldwide military and humanitarian operations."
