SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Vermont Air National Guard will conduct night flying from Tuesday, Dec. 6 to Friday, Dec. 9 with one afternoon and one evening takeoff period per day. The night flying operations will typically conclude by 7:00 p.m. each day.

“We are required to periodically train at night to ensure proficiency in all conditions,” said Col. Daniel Finnegan, 158th Fighter Wing Commander. “We appreciate the community’s support of this necessary training which ensures we are able to fulfill our state and federal missions when called upon.”

As the first Air National Guard F-35 unit to be fully mission capable, the 158th Fighter Wing deployed earlier this year to Germany in support of ongoing NATO Air Shielding missions.

“All of the training we do, whether locally or at exercises across the country, prepares us for critical global missions,” Finnegan said. “The 158th provided crucial support in Europe to deter aggression and assure our allies in the region.”
