I just moved back from living in Alamogordo NM ie Holloman AFB, home of the Raptor.
Anyone who thinks they want the F35 in Tucson needs to visit Holloman, I recommend any Tues or Thursday starting around 8:00 am. The noise is insane. Ever experience a sonic boom? Ever experience a sonic boom that shakes and rattles everything in your house, that makes you jump a couple of feet in the air, a boom that sounds like a bomb going off? They were common - like several times a week. And the periodic night flights provided good water cooler talk - "Did you that boom at 11:30 wake you up?" "No but the one at 2:00 sure did."
Holloman and the town of Alamogordo wants the F35 - let them have it. It is the perfect location - in the middle of nowhere. That's where these planes belong. Those of you who want The F35 have no idea what you are asking for.
