KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (AP) - The Marine Corps is warning windward Oahu residents to expect more aircraft noise for a short period.

The Marines say people can expect to see multiple helicopters conducting maintenance and readiness flights from 10:15 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Friday. Residents may also hear more noise.

The training is designed to challenge aircraft maintenance crews to maintain the highest possible level of readiness.

UH-1Y Huey and CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters will be involved in the exercises.
