Oak Harbor, WA 98277
As a long time resident and tax payer in Oak Harbor since 1968 I feel it is my right to be
able to sleep at night and be able to enjoy my property without the loud noise caused by
the EA-18G military aircraft. I served in the US Navy from 1968 to 1977, did my ship
board time during the Vietnam conflict. I purchased a house in Dugualla bay in 1971,
lived there for 5 years until the noise drove me out. I NEVER called and complained
about the noise. I did call and complain about the A6 and EA-6 aircraft dumping aviation
fuel as they were landing. I worked around the aircraft enough to know where it was
coming from on the aircraft… seeing it being dumped I moved from Dugualla bay after 5
years of noise. I purchased a home off of after meeting with real-estate sales
people, going over noise impact maps and selecting a home site .5 miles from Oak
Harbor Airport a 0 as in zero no navy aircraft fly zone…. Everything was fine until the
EA-18G were sent to Whidbey… nothing but noise problems since then. I didn’t think I
would have to hold onto the noise impact maps when I bought the property, of course
they are no longer around. I have called numerous times over the past couple of years,
have asked for a call back each time I have called and have only had 1 call returned….
Honor your part of the covenant and stop flying over my property Tax Payer

    The noise from these Growlers is intolerable. These touch and go exercises on Whidbey Island must stop.
