If you heard of planes soaring over your housing area, no need to be panic as the Royal Malaysian Air Force is currently conducting its air operation exercise that will end next Monday (7 March).

In a statement issued earlier today, the RMAF said that the exercise was to assess its assets’ readiness for air operation in protecting the country’s sovereignty and airspace.

The training involving the RMAF Special Forces (PASKAU), pilots and crew members are conducted at several bases including in Selangor, the Gong Kedak, Terengganu, the Butterworth, Penang and the Kuantan airbase.

“During the exercise, RMAF aircraft will perform low-flying tactical flights at certain locations,” the statement reads.

RMAF also advised the public not to be anxious if they see planes flying low during the exercise period.

Several netizens had also taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.

Tweeter user @juanajaafar tweeted “My mother called the police on TUDM (RMAF) this morning. How was your morning?”.

Meanwhile, @izza_ocha tweeted “Apparently TUDM was doing some flying exercise this morning. No wonder I kept hearing jets flying so low. My brain kept thinking my place was gonna get (bombed) or something. My brain has no chill. Pity the SPM students too!! Very distracting.”
