People living in and around Pictou are reminded that military choppers will be flying in the area Tuesday night, part of a large joint training exercise between the United States and Canada.

The helicopters are part of Frontier Sentinel 2013, an exercise being conducted this week throughout the Maritimes.

The Canadian Forces said it is trying to keep the disruption to the public down and regrets if the training is causing any inconvenience.
