WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military is planning some training flights over Washington and Frederick County, Md., to test the region’s air defenses.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command says the flights over the Washington area will take place between midnight and 2 a.m. Wednesday.

NORAD says the flights over Frederick County are scheduled between 4:10 a.m. and 5 a.m. Wednesday.

NORAD conducts such exercises monthly to hone its intercept and identification procedures and test the region’s visual warning system.
