BOISE -- Military officials say high-performance fighter jets will be training over Boise from Monday through Wednesday.

Idaho National Guard Col. Tim Marsano says the U.S. Air Force pilots with the 389th Fighter Squadron will be honing their skills mostly in the mornings and evenings in F-15E Strike Eagles.

He says residents will likely see and hear the jets.

The jets are capable of air-to-air and air-to-ground combat.

Marsano says the pilots occasionally need to train over urban areas to maintain combat skills in highly populated settings.
