Four F-18s to Operate from LGB This Weekend

March 4, 2016

On Saturday, March 5, four F/A-18 aircraft will be arriving at Long Beach Airport (LGB). The aircraft are scheduled to arrive in the early evening around 5:00 p.m., and depart on Sunday, March 6 around midday. All times are tentative and subject to change.

 

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.
