MOODY A.F.B., Ga. (WCTV) -- Officials at Moody Air Force Base are notifying residents of military aircraft training that is set to take place July 17 through July 21.

Moody officials say that residents in the surrounding counties may notice military aircraft performing maneuvers at varying altitudes, which may bring an increase in air traffic noise.

The training will involve F-16 and AC-130 aircraft using Moody's Grand Bay Bombing and Gunnery Range and military training airspace. Theses aircraft are not assigned to Moody AFB and officials are advising that the aircraft noise will be louder than normal.

Moody officials said in a statement, "We are doing all we can to balance the concerns of our host communities, and at the same time, provide an area to train and develop our operational capabilities. Moody continually readdresses flight paths to ensure they impede as little as possible on local daily activity, and community complaints are never ignored."

Anyone with questions can contact the Moody Air Force Base Public Affairs Office.
