Four F/A-18 aircraft will conduct operations at LGB this week. They are anticipated to arrive Tuesday, June 14 in the afternoon and depart in the early morning on Wednesday, June 15, but all times are tentative and subject to change. They are significantly louder than aircraft that typically operate at LGB.
Military aircraft are exempt from noise regulations. However, the military has consistently demonstrated a desire to assist LGB in being a good neighbor and will follow standard noise abatement arrival and departure procedures, including modified arrival and departure flight profiles and minimum use of afterburners.
