F-35 Noise Contour Map Backgrounder

The F-35 Environmental Impact Statement reveals that the Air Force's plan to bring 72 F-35 fighters to the Boise, Idaho airport would subject almost 7000 acres and over 10,000 citizens to noise levels so loud that the area would be designated by FAA regulations, Not Suitable For Residential Use. Several local folks not familiar with the EIS have questioned the 65 DNL noise contour and the EIS itself.

More disturbing than the ignorance of a few fellow citizens is the misleading and incomplete nature of the EIS report. The 65 DNL noise contour is a sleight of hand based on averaging all sound in a given area over twenty-four hours. Nowhere in the 1180 pages of the EIS does it actually state how loud the F-35s' noise would be in the schools, day care centers, parks and homes in the flight path. For an aircraft that is eight times louder than the 18 A-10s currently located at the Boise airport, that is a serious flaw.
