VENTURA, Calif. (AP) - The Air Force is alerting Ventura County residents to expect roaring engines overhead from F-35 fighter jets on test flights from Oxnard and Point Mugu airports.

Officials say the tests Wednesday will involve high-tech instrument landing systems installed at both airfields.

Col. Scott Cain says the tests will be similar to flights conducted last month in the same area. Cain says the previous tests did not provide enough useable data so the jets will fly again.
