EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE — Two F-16s from the 85th Test and Evaluation Squadron will conduct a routine weapons test from 8-8:30 a.m. on April 28.

Navarre, Gulf Breeze and possibly parts of Pensacola might hear detonations.

The 85th Test and Evaluation Squadron is responsible for conducting operational test and evaluation, tactics development and programs for F-15C, F-15E and F-16CM aircraft.

The 85th tests and evaluates current and future weapons, associated electronic warfare subsystems, the newest air-to-ground munitions, air-to-air missiles, electronic warfare systems, and associated subcomponents and avionics.

It provides operational fighter expertise to U.S. Air Force Headquarters, Department of Defense agencies and the aerospace industry in developing aircraft, employment techniques and concepts.

The test was rescheduled from April 18 due to weather.
