A spokesman for RAF Wittering said: "We are reaching out to our neighbours in the nearby villages and equestrian establishments because the time and type of aircraft activity will be very different from normal.

"Night flying is an important skill for civilian and military aircrews, and RAF Wittering is happy to help keep our pilots and their teams ready for operations.

"The activity should be complete by Friday morning."

It follows complaints from residents in Peterborough last month after an increase in USAF flights from RAF Lakenheath over the city for training purposes.
