F-15C Eagle

An Oregon Air National Guard F-15C Eagle, assigned to the 142nd Wing takes off from Portland Air National Guard Base at dusk. 

Residents may hear planes overhead this week.

The Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Wing will conduct routine F-15 Eagle night training missions tonight through Thursday, the Oregon Military Department reported Monday.

Training flights are weather-dependent, a spokesperson said.

Night training allows the citizen-airmen pilots based at the Portland Air National Guard Base to stay current with mandatory Air Force requirements and support mission and response.

Training flights will be completed each evening before 10 p.m.
