    They are at war with the local residents. Why having such noisy, low-flying, slow planes that enemies can spot miles away, that are easy targets, other than for inflicting pain to the local population hoping no one goes berserk against them?

    Considering I checked your site out, let me take this rebuttal Vincent in an analytical way: The American Navy is doing what the patriotic majority of Americans want. They did this before the latest clown in the White House; they will do this regardless if it’s President Derek Kilmer or President Chris Murphy or G*d Forbid President Donald Trump in 2021. Regardless of whom the Mayor of Coupeville is or does, the Navy will keep using OLF.

    Quite frankly 5 January 1967 happened: https://www.scribd.com/doc/305896998/1967-01-26-WNT-Navy-Works-on-Coupeville-Strip – and the Navy got aviation easements & conservation easements to get their way. Therein lies your problem. Compute that.
