ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Dyess Air Force Base wants to assure the public a ‘loud boom’ heard throughout Abilene was part of their ongoing training exercise. 

A Dyess AFB representative told KTAB and KRBC the training exercise began Thursday morning and will continue into the afternoon, so residents can expect to hear loud noises during that time-frame.

Several concerned citizens reached out to KTAB and KRBC after hearing one of the training ‘booms’ just before 10:00 a.m. – some saying they heard it near HEB, others near S. 6th Street.
