An RAF base is warning of a potential increase in noise levels across the region while personnel take part in flight training.
Members of the 48th Fighter Wing, from RAF Lakenheath, will be flying on a more frequent basis until Thursday (May 13).
The operation, which will see F-15 fighter jets take to the skies, is designed to demonstrate the wing's ability to rapidly generate an airborne response.
RAF Lakenheath says it will also provide aircrew and support personnel with the experience needed to capably support the NATO alliance.
The exercise does not include plans for low-altitude flying in the area and all training is being conducted in accordance with Ministry of Defence and UK airspace regulations.
