Re: “Thunderhill: Low-Flying Mystery Planes Rattle Small Vermont Town

These professional military aviators were executing a textbook 300 foot AGL (Above Ground Level) modified contour low level route profile, mitigating sparsely populated areas by at least 500 feet AGL and/ or 1 NM lateral separation, enroute to either a drop zone or landing zone, within a 1 minute Time on Target. There isnt time for sowing oats or cowboying at that altitude in a formation, nor would there be with a full crew of combat qualified Airmen. These are highly skilled military personnel who dedicate their time and efforts to ensure that they can infiltrate and exfiltrate hostile areas anywhere in the world to resupply war fighters and evacuate the wounded without damaging a multi-million dollar major weapons system. Though you may feel like they were trimming the branches of your oak trees, you are incorrect. If you are unhappy with the noise of these aircraft, or if it ruffles your sense of security, you can contact the Wing that operates them, provide them your location, and they will mark your residence on their low level charts to avoid it. The assumption that operating a large combat transport aircraft within 300 feet on terra firma in a careless or reckless manner is absurd.
