10News: Neighbors concerned with F-35 coming to MCAS Miramar

West Coast Basing of F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter squadrons is expected at MCAS Miramar in 2020. Hanger construction and other preparations are well underway. The F-35 will replace the F/A-18 Hornet at Miramar. As reported by 10News, some “University City neighbors are concerned with the F-35 coming to MCAS Miramar, saying it will be noisier and less safe. Tuesday night, a post on Nextdoor lit up talking about a fighter jet buzzing homes. “When I hear the noise, I just think this is the sound of freedom. This is all about the sound of freedom, but I just also want to hear about safety and I’m not hearing the word safety,” neighbor Don Hotz said.

“He’s spoken with 10News before, concerned about flight paths Marines take. Several people have been emailing the base since September 2018, creating two binders full of papers. One concern points to a recent Environmental Impact Report draft by the Air Force, suggesting the noise from the F-35 could make neighborhoods in Idaho uninhabitable.”
