I went to Irvine Meadows (Amphitheatre) to hear the best of Beethoven, but three times Beethoven was drowned out by screeching, low-flying jets that completely circled the amphitheater before landing at El Toro.
I plead with the politicians who were there and others to use their influence with the military to change those jet flights, at least those after 8:30 p.m.
And please get them to decrease our noise pollution by ending the buddy system of flying where two or more aircraft fly closely together. The buddy system was used in wartime to help each other in case of attack, but now it is too noisy, too dangerous and unnecessary.
