The Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Wing will conduct routine F-15 Eagle night training missions during August 14-17, 2023. 

“Night training is essential to the readiness of our pilots to defend the Pacific Northwest under any conditions,” said Master Sgt. Steph Sawyer, 142nd Wing Public Affairs Senior Enlisted Leader. “We appreciate the continued support and understanding of our fellow Oregonians.” 

Night training allows the Citizen-Airmen pilots based at the Portland Air National Guard Base to stay current with mandatory Air Force requirements. Night flying is conducted as an essential training requirement for nighttime maneuvers. Training flights will be completed each evening before 10:45 p.m.
