F-18 Fighter Jets To Conduct Training At Long Beach Airport This Weekend

Two U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 aircraft will be conducting training operations at Long Beach Airport Friday through Sunday. They are significantly louder than aircraft that typically operate at the airport. We anticipate they’ll arrive in the late a.m. tomorrow and depart in the afternoon on Sunday.

All times subject to change. Due to the unique nature of the mission, military aircraft are exempt from noise regulations, but they will be using noise abatement procedures in the Long Beach area (modified arrival & departure flight profiles & min. use of afterburners).
