The British and Hungarian air forces are holding joint exercises from August 21 until August 25, the Hungarian Ministry of Defence said on Monday.

The exercises, dubbed Carpathian Hawk, are being directed from the Hungarian airbase at Kecskemét.  The RAF and Hungarian air force will be using Hawk jet training craft and JAS 39 Gripens.

The ministry noted that noise levels in parts of western Hungary will be heightened during the period.

It was not the first time the British and Hungarian air forces held joint exercises.
