The U.S. Air Force is training to station fighter jets in Fort Lauderdale as part of its mission to protect President Donald Trump when he visits Mar-a-Lago, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command said.

Low-flying jets roared over South Florida as part of military exercises Wednesday morning, sparking concern and questions on social media.

Part of their objective was to practice flying out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to intercept planes, said Michael Kucharek, a NORAD spokesman.

“We train as we would fight,” he said. “We have the best interest of the nation at heart. We have to create as realistic scenario as we can and that comes in many forms.”

During previous Trump visits, planes enforcing flight restrictions have been based at Homestead Air Reserve Base. Moving the jets to Fort Lauderdale will improve response times, Kucharek said.
