Next week, you may see and hear fighter jets in the skies above when the North American Aerospace Defense Command conducts multiple drills.

The exercises will include fighter jets and general aviation aircraft contracted by the Department of Defense. The drill will test NORAD's response to air threats. The military agency has not yet given dates or times for the drills.
