Apache helicopters have been spotted flying over Kent on multiple trips this week.
The aircraft used by the army have been seen travelling low during the evening since Monday.
On most of the occasions, two have been seen together.
It comes after the army suspended most activity in March in response to the coronavirus crisis.
But this month it commenced a phased restart.
An army spokesperson said: "The army regularly conducts flying training to ensure we can continue operations as well as other essential tasks to protect the nation and preserve national security.
"Where training has resumed it is being conducted in line with government and public health guidelines.
"Low flying training remains a part of essential operational training.”
Chinooks have also been spotted and there are expected to be more sightings over the coming weeks.
RAF Team Odiham have been conducting essential training near Headcorn Aerodrome between 3pm and 3am.
Helicopter crews are training to continue supporting the government and other essential services during the coronavirus pandemic.
