BOSTON (CBS) – Don’t be surprised if you hear or see fighter jets over southeastern Massachusetts or northern Rhode Island Thursday morning – it’s just training exercises.

Two F-15 fighter jets will be trailing an Air Force C-21 to help train pilots how to respond to possible hijackings and airspace restrictions.

If you’re in those areas you might see the fighter jets practicing intercept maneuvers.
