Burlington International Airport is asking the Federal Aviation Administration to fund a noise monitoring system following the arrival of the F-35 jets to the region last year.
The move follows requests from city leaders in Winooski, South Burlington and Burlington. The airport is owned by Burlington but located in South Burlington.
The F-35s arrived in Burlington last fall after a years-long debate, with community members expressing concerns about the increased noise of the F-35s compared to the F-16s that left the airport in April 2019.[FULL ARTICLE]
