There's a big reason towns don't want to host the F-35

The F-35s "will have incredibly significant negative impact on up to 10,000 people who will be unfortunate enough to be in the noise contour zone that the federal government deems unsuitable for residential use," Greco said.

Hmm what about those big airliners that the sameones take on vacation? Bet that when they are in them they dont even think about the noise thats created by there mode of transport.

The same people that complain about the jet noise would be up in arms if the armed forces decided to close the base in that town. If they don't want them, move them to a place that welcomes the jobs.
The Vermont Air Guard used to fly F-4's in the late 70's and early 80's. The city of Winooski (as mentoned in the articile) wanted to build a dome over the city to help mitigate the noise. Yes, a dome. Go figure.

65Db don't exactly "shake" your house (or anything else for that matter).
That's vacuum cleaner loud. And that's in the article, did you read it?

Send some MU-2's in for a month before the f-35's arrive, and then a month later remove them and nobody will be complaining about the sound of the JSF.

Typical NIMBYs.
I like hearing that noise when I'm playing golf in Destin. Elgin makes life on the Emerald Coast very interesting.

You would guess that people would think it is cool to hear the roar of a F-35. They are several hundred million apiece stealth fighters that are supposed to be like the Galactic Star...
