Virginia Beach residents can expect more jet noise for the next week

Full story: WTKR

Residents who live near Navy air strips can expect more noise for about a week. Oceana spokeswoman Kelley Stirling says squadrons from Oceana Naval Air Station and Norfolk Naval Station are conducting field carrier landing practice at Oceana and Fentress Auxiliary Landing Field in Chesapeake.

I am a military spouse and they sound of jet noise may be a little annoying at times but it honestly gives me a sense of safety! I get that some of you enjoy your quiet but I enjoy my freedom! You are complaining about those who keep you safe! These planes protect our airways! And for those planes that are not patrolling they are logging the hours needed to maintane their certifications so that they can continue to keep us safe. My safety and freedom are worth a little noise!!!

Calling names and telling people to leave? Is this really what our country has come to? I am an Iraq war veteran. I didn't like the jet noise there and I don't like it here. Regardless of whether you do or don't like the noise, the jets are deteriorating your hearing (given your proximity obviously). Moving these operations to an area with less people around only makes sense for health and safety. People who will put money over physical well being should possibly rethink their priorities. Our country is going to continue it's downward spiral if we can't learn to respect eachother and compromise.

A good place to move the Navy and that jet noise would be Detroit MI.

Hey Jackass, no one is complaining about the Native Americans. My family is probably much more Native American than you. Your comment is ignorant and just plain stupid. No one is saying they should defend our country dumbass, we are the largest city in Virginia now and you can not even hear the person standing next to you at the oceanfront at times when they fly over.
How would you like to move near Chesapeake Regional Airport 'Larry'!?

So how would you like to live near Chesapeake Regional Airport "California transplant"!? Those Navy and Air Force jets are not wanted in areas with less people either...you do remember when efforts to make Cecil Field, Fla. a Naval air station were voted down nearly six years ago, don't you?

The jets were here long before you were. They'll be here long after you're gone. If you don't like the jet noise then MOVE!

Hey genocide,
Start feeding,clothing and adopting all the unwanted children already on this earth. Why does a man have a right to even have an opinion on what a women does with her body! Don't go throwing Religious quotes at me either people interpet the Bible according to their own needs and wants. Dumb a__ people like you can justify anything. As far as Jet noise It sucks!!!! There should be a law for Apartment Management Companys to disclose Jet noise potential like realtors. I'm stuck in a lease because I was not informed when moving here from another state. I'm surprised anyone is happy around here considering the mood this noise cause for me to stay in. It's like having a FLY buzzing around you you just can't swat.

Men have been telling women what to do since the beginning of time. That's the way the Bible says it's supposed to be.
If the sound of aircraft that are up there risking their lives protecting you puts you in a bad mood, that's your tough luck. Did you not see the giant Naval Air Station when you first came to town? Did you not assume there wound probably be some noise? Be thankful you don't live in a country where the jets are shooting at you.

Since when did anyone have to be religious in order to agree that abortion is genocide "A woman with rights"? Have you ever checked out the web-site of Life Dynamics Incorporated and asked yourself if there is a link between racism and abortion!?

My Husband is a NAVY pilot out of Oceana. They do not fly ALL night. Glad to see this "Military" town supports out Men & Women. Why don't you people move!? Sounds like a plan!
I just purchased a home in Oceana Village (right across from the runway) and personally I plan to paint an American flag on my roof with a huge yellow "Thank You!" for your husband and the rest of our hero's. For all the haters, WE ARE AT WAR! Be glad the jets you hear are ours. Sometimes we may not be able to hear each other when we are standing right next to one another and that would be a great time to shut the ^%&*% up and be grateful for your freedom. And they do NOT fly all night, the cut off is 10pm. Get your facts straight and quit sniffling.

Really? Your opinion of the Bible is warped and twisted. If men were able to get pregnant, abortion clinics would be like 7-11. One on every corner. Stick to the subject at hand.

First, I do not live in TN. Don't know where that came from. Second, if you don't want Oceana to move, then move the people who are encroaching since they moved there after the fact. Third, if Oceana leaves and allows the city to sell the property, you are looking at a lot of money coming in. That is prime property. Fourth, the airwing does not have to be right with the carriers. Look at CA for an example where the planes are a couple hundred miles away from the carriers. Fifth, this is becoming an issue of safety. There was a crash on the spot that Lynnhaven Mall now sits and it is still considered a crash area because of the flight pattern. The Navy can actually fly where ever it wishes. The paths they take now are just to be "good neighbors" to the city. The only flight path that is more set in stone, is the actual entry into Oceana. A pilot must fly at different heights, directions, and speeds to mitigate noise and work their way around buildings.
Peace, quite and quality of life do sell "Diane_ NC"...but who's buying!?
