Training exercises to create loud noises for Wheeler residents

LAST UPDATED: 01:00 p.m. HST, Mar 07, 2014

An Air Force C-17 Globemaster cargo jet will be using the Wheeler Army Airfield during a training exercise on Saturday.

Residents on Wheeler Army Airfield and the surrounding community can expect an increase in noise between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The C-17 will be participating in a deployment preparedness for units in the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade. Soldiers will train on the procedures of folding and loading UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters into the cargo aircraft.

To report concerns related to noise or training, call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii noise concern line at 656-3487.

How can these exercises be any worse than the noise created by that "weed wacker" engine drone they fly around the air traffic pattern at Wheeler?
