Expanded military budgets and increased activities at bases across the U.S. are challenging health, safety, and quality of life. PLANE TRUTHS, a new documentary by Clinton filmmakers Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young, examines the community impacts of US Navy expansion in northwest Washington State and the people who are speaking out.
Community members on Whidbey Island, the San Juans, and the Olympic Peninsula are disturbed by an increase in noise caused by new EA-18G “Growler” jets based at Naval Air Station Whidbey (NAS), and a significant proposed expansion of daily Growler test flights. On Whidbey, communities have been additionally impacted by water system pollution caused by chemicals used for firefighting on NAS landing strips. Currently the Navy is proposing to train Navy Seals in state parks.
