Journalist John Briggs reports, “Opponents of basing the F-35 warplane at Burlington International Airport will hold a demonstration of the sound of the planes Tuesday in front of the offices of Governor Peter Shumlin and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger.”
The organizers of the protest apologized for the sound they will create, saying, “We don’t want to expose ANYONE to the staggering noise generated by an F-35,” but said the refusal of the Vermont congressional delegation, Shumlin and Weinberger to discuss the plane’s basing with the public has made the demonstration necessary.
