WASHINGTON (AP) — Training flights are planned for early next week in the District of Columbia.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command said Saturday that it would conduct training exercises in the region late Monday and Tuesday nights.

The training, called Exercise Falcon Virgo, is intended to strengthen NORAD’s intercept and identification operations.

The training is scheduled from 11 p.m. Monday to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday and from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.
