Four F/A-18 aircraft will conduct operations at Long Beach Airport from Thursday, April 13, through Monday, April 17. We anticipate that the aircraft will arrive in the afternoon on Thursday and depart in the afternoon on Monday, but all times are tentative and subject to change.
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.
