    does anyone know how many FCLP have been completed so far this year? If I remember correctly, the EIS stated they were only allowed to fly a certain amount and then they were to stop. That is one of the reason they had to stop last time, the exceeded the amount of flights stated in the EIS.

      The navy agreed to limit themselves to 6120 ops ( 3,060 bounces) as they stated they were going to do in their own EA. WE have to do a FOIA to get the number so far. You are right, that’s why they stopped last year, they thought we weren’t counting, and we caught them red handed, so to speak.

    I know a number of people who called and emailed the Navy about the altitude of the jets. Low flying Growlers are scary and loud – a total disruption. That’s why the Supreme Court rules a “taking” if they fly under 500 feet. Of course people call to complain. People in Admirals Cove are told they fly at 500 feet. What a coincidence. But look at the chart. They fly 300-440 feet there and probably lower at times. The Navy doesn’t care what gets said to get people off the phone. And,they get to do anything after they’ve done it long enough. The air space becomes an easement. Watch out Freeland and Greenbank. If they start flying over you and you let them, they’ll get their easement over your property, too. They’ll need your airspace, with all the Growlers coming. Where do you think twice as many will fly? Remember the frog in hot water anaology? A frog put in a pan of really hot water will jump out. A frog in water where the temperature is increased slowly will just sit there and cook. Do this instead. Contact Congress. Get email, samples, and more to email the decision-maker who can get them to stop. Go to:

    We are very aware that the navy seldom keeps their word. That’s why we take them to court.
