Air traffic controllers at the Tri-Cities Airport say military planes have been practicing in the skies over the Tri-Cities.

News Channel 11 reached out to FAA personnel after receiving several reports from viewers of planes flying low over the Kingsport, Colonial Heights, Gray, and Fall Branch areas. 

FAA officials say Navy 737s from Florida have been flying around the area throughout the day. Some of the planes have been landing and taking off at the airport. 

Air traffic controllers were unsure how many military planes have been flying around today, but say there were two still practicing late Monday evening.

It is unclear how long the planes will remain in the area.
