The U.S. Air Force this week began "Combat Hammer," where bombers and fighters from across the country fly to Utah to drop and fire ordinances on the Utah Test and Training Range.
The exercise started Monday and continues through May 15.
Some of the aircraft will take off and land at Hill Air Force Base. Other aircraft, including B-2 bombers from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, will fly directly to the range.
