On Friday, November 19, three U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 aircraft will be arriving at Long Beach Airport (LGB). The aircraft are anticipated to arrive Friday afternoon and conduct training operations Saturday before departing on Sunday afternoon, November 21. All 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.
