    The U.S. military is planning overnight training flights in the Washington area to test the region's aerospace defenses.

    The North American Aerospace Defense Command said Wednesday's flights are scheduled to take place between midnight and 2 a.m.

    NORAD said it has conducted similar exercises throughout the U.S. and Canada since the start of Operation Noble Eagle, the command's response to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
