Two F/A-18 aircraft will conduct operations at Long Beach Airport from Friday, May 27 through Tuesday, May 31. It is anticipated that the aircraft will arrive in the afternoon on Friday, conduct operations throughout the weekend for Fleet Week Los Angeles, and the depart in the morning on Tuesday. 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.
