Ah yes, those darn noisy C-130s. I, too, live in the flight pattern of these planes and other aircraft that are noisy. To those who live in Sycamore Bend, don’t worry about your extravagant homes being in danger. Lee Trapp hopefully relieved your concerns about these awesome aircraft.

These fine men and women practice several hours on the ground before they fly. My nephew is a pilot for the Black Hawk choppers, and he spent numerous hours on the ground, just doing scenarios with computers.

He is a career Air Force man, just as his father was. He will be flying over to Atterbury during practice missions. It’s a shame to all those who complain about the noisy aircraft. It is the sound of our freedom.

Think about that, the next time you see one of these magnificent aircraft. God bless these soldiers who give their time for our freedom.

Don't settle for a preview.
