MONROE - The evening sky in Monroe will be quieter after the conclusion of the Air National Guard's nighttime flight exercises Thursday. F-16 fighter jets from the 115th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard, stationed at the Truax Field Air National Guard Base in Madison, have engaged in night flying exercises since Monday, said Major Kristin Boustany, public affairs officer for the 115th Wing. Boustany said the wing typically engages in nighttime exercises shortly after Daylight Savings Time ends each year, as the early darkness allows pilots to train in night conditions earlier in the day.
