原文:

 The active duty 388th Fighter Wing and Air Force Reserve 419th Fighter Wing will conduct local night-flying operations with the F-35A Lightning II on most weekdays through Oct. 1, 2021. 

 During this period, flying is scheduled to be completed between 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. These times may change based on a number of factors including weather, airspace availability on the Utah Test and Training Range, and other support elements.

 Hill's fighter wings must train at night to maintain their combat readiness. Night flying is limited to what is required for pilots to remain proficient in those skills.

 Over the past two years, the fighter wings have deployed in support of combat operations in the Middle East and remain ready when they are called upon.
