The 104th Fighter Wing of Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield, conducted flyover drills above Martha’s Vineyard on Tuesday. The jets could be heard flying over the Island at about 2 pm Tuesday.
On Monday, Martha’s Vineyard Airport assistant airport director Geoff Freeman alerted the public to the drill. Freeman said at the time he had no more information from the air base, other than the fact that the flyovers would take place.
The Times could not immediately reach Barnes air base officials for comment, but the jets caused a stir in August during an unannounced drill.
