All along our southern border would be a great place to do these flights, and for pilots to test monitoring equipment that might detect humans on the ground, as in ILLEGALS. Perhaps ever some 'laser surgery' practice too!

What has become of people?

Complain, complain complain about any little thing any level of government does.

I have no problem with low flights if it helps our service people and pilots get training so they can better protect us in case of an attack OR if they are sent to a war zone.

I used to live directly in the flight path of Norton Air Force Base in Redlands, CA and 24/7 planes would take off and land, and I don''t mean just any plane, not only fighter planes but those jumbo transport planes that truly had a low rumble noise to it.

Fly as low or high as you guys want, those that don't want to hear it go buy ear plugs or go to a gun store and buy good ear protectors, I assure you won't hear a thing.

But stop whining over every little thing.

I agree on that and would love a nice hour flight at mach 2, man we could cover a lot of miles in that short time frame BUT would we be able to enjoy the scenery?
