WESTFIELD, Mass. (Tribune News Service) — Increased flight operations, including weekend and night sorties, may take place at Barnes Air National Guard Base, home of the 104th Fighter Wing.

These operations are in support of higher headquarters taskings and are not part of the wing’s normal training cycle, according to base officials.

“We are residents of the greater Westfield community and truly appreciate the continued support of our neighbors as it allows us to conduct our state and federal missions,” said Col. David Halasi-Kun, commander of the 104th Fighter Wing.

The Westfield base is home to F-15C Eagle fighter jets.
