The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds perform during the 2019 Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona air show at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base on March 24, 2019.

When people hear loud booms this week, they don't need to wonder what's going on.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base will be holding readiness exercises through out the week involving aircrafts, explosive ordnance disposal and more activities that have the potential to cause loud booms, according to a press from the U.S Air Force.
