F-16 fighter jets were set to fly around the Dayton, Springfield and Middletown region Wednesday night, an Ohio Air National Guard spokesman says.

The Toledo-based 180th Fighter Wing jets will intercept a Civil Air Patrol aircraft. The wing will be training through 9 p.m. Thursday, according to the unit.

The jets could travel through the region at any time during the night exercises, said Staff Sgt. Shane Hughes, a wing spokesman.

Southern Ohio is home to the Brush Creek/Buckeye Military Operating Area where the pilots occasionally train.
