On Friday, August 21, U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 aircraft will be arriving at Long Beach Airport (LGB). After a few planned operations over the weekend, the aircraft will depart on Sunday, August 23. All dates are tentative and subject to change without notice.

Military aircraft are exempt from noise regulations. However, the U.S. Marine Corps 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.
