Fort Benning to hold low-flying, bomb training


FORT BENNING, Ga — Fort Benning plans to hold training exercises during the week that may cause a lot of noise.

A press release says the Army and Air Force will be working together to conduct low-flying aircraft and bomb training from Monday, September 19 until Friday, September 23.

The release says community members should expect to hear noise from the fast-moving, low-flying planes. There will also be a large amount of noise from the exercise’s use of 2.75 rockets and 500-pound class bombs.

The bombs will sound similar to artillery fire that is usually heard on base, according to the release.

The Army says the noise can be heard between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

If you hear noise from the training exercises, know there is no threat to the community.
