Jet Fighters to Buzz Treasure Valley Today

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2012 at 9:16 AM

Some call it "the sound of freedom." Others, who are not thrilled with the sound of jet fighters over the Treasure Valley, have a few other names for the noise.

Officials at Mountain Home Air Force Base have confirmed that residents may notice more jet noise over southwest Idaho today. Several U.S. Marine Corps FA-18 Hornets will conduct military exercises between Mountain Home and Boise through late afternoon. The so-called "hornet squadron" hails from the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar, Calif.
