BURLINGTON — The complaints of Burlington area residents have been heard, even over the sound of the Vermont National Guard’s F-35 fighter jets.
Burlington International Airport has installed a sound monitoring system that tracks aircraft noise in the hopes of addressing the series of complaints about noise levels and concerns over hearing damage that followed the 2019 arrival of the National Guard’s F-35 jets. However, it’s unlikely the monitoring system will result in any significant changes in airport or National Guard operations, representatives from both institutions said.
The noise monitoring system uses large microphones installed at strategic places to measure decibel levels.[FULL ARTICLE]
