HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Fighter and refueling aircraft from Selfridge Air National Guard Base are expected to conduct flights next week over the Detroit River, downtown Detroit and other areas in Michigan.

Officials at the base in Macomb County’s Harrison Township say the flights will be Tuesday morning and afternoon. They also will be conducted over Lansing and the Mackinac Bridge.

The aircraft could fly at lower altitudes than normally seen in those areas. The base says the lower altitudes still will be within Federal Aviation Administration safety standards.

Selfridge is northeast of Detroit and is home to the Michigan Air National Guard 127th Wing.
