Vt. F-35 opponents demonstrate noise

WCAX - 2:14 pm Wed Jun 26th, 2013

Opponents of a plan that could bring F-35 fighter planes to Vermont say their playing of a recording of the jets taking off shows just how loud the planes would be flying over communities near the Burlington International Airport.

On Tuesday some of the opponents played recordings of the planes taking off in both Burlington and Montpelier, amplified to about 115 decibels, said to be the maximum sound the planes would make on takeoff.

In front of the speakers it was impossible to hear, but the Vermont National Guard says the demonstration is not what the community would experience if the planes were flown from South Burlington.
