GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - A number of Franklin County residents heard a military jet training exercise in the skies Wednesday morning.
F-15 Jets from the 104th Fighter Wing in Westfield were practicing scramble maneuvers around the Massachusetts and Vermont state line.
Maj. Matthew Mutti of the 104th told 22News the practice scramble involved intercepting a civilian jet.
Additional practices are planned throughout the month.
The training helps the pilots prepare to deal with airspace restriction violations, hijackings, and responding to unknown aircraft.
