One F/A-18 aircraft will be arriving at Long Beach Airport (LGB) late in the afternoon on Friday, October 29. After training operations on Saturday, the aircraft will depart around noon on Sunday, October 31. All dates and times are tentative and subject to change without notice.
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.
F/A-18 aircraft are noticeably louder than other aircraft and are easily heard in neighborhoods near LGB.
