Locals have been warned of a “substantial increase” in flight activity in Fife as part of a three-week military exercise.
The training operation will involve night-time flying and will be focused around the Leuchars area, where the British Army has a base, and will take place from September 1 to 20.
A Leuchars Station statement on the exercise says there will be four days where 24-hour flight operations will take place.
Both fixed-wing and rotary aircraft will be used during the three-week stint.
The operation will begin with five days of flying taking place between 9am and midnight.
The statement, circulated via the Guardbridge Community Council, reads: “A three week Military exercise will take place in the Fife area from 1st to 20th September 2019.
“During this period there will be a substantial increase in low level and night time flying in the Fife area, particularly in the vicinity of Leuchars, from both fixed-wing and rotary aircraft.
“The rolling programme will commence with five days of flying from 0900 to 2359 hrs, followed by four days where 24-hour flight operations have been authorised.
“This routine exercise provides vital training opportunities for all those involved.”
