Staff at RAF Honington have warned residents of an increase in aircraft activity next week.
Both air and ground crews will be carrying out essential training between Wednesday and Friday (July 21 to July 23) at the airbase near Bury St Edmunds.
A spokeswoman for the base said the training will take place in the skies over the base and in the local area.
It is expected to extend into the late hours, the spokeswoman added.
The west Suffolk airbase is home to three frontline RAF field squadrons and several specialist units such as the RAF Police Wing.
