Today is the first day of Operation Northern Lightning, a training activity by the Air National Guard, and continuing for the next two weeks. At 9:45 this morning, the first of the F-35s came over, dramatically louder than the F-16s that we are more familiar with. Most of the activity will be north of here, around Camp Douglas, but we can get some experience with these new planes. The neighborhood church was holding an outdoor service, and was of course were prevented from continuing. I hope there are professional grade decibel meters that can get some good readings on them.
