F-16 noise survey for Fall 2020 - English.
Welcome to our first F-16 fighter jet noise survey for Fall 2020, hosted by Safe Skies Clean Water Wisconsin. Our coalition of local and state organizations was created to stop the deployment of a squadron of new generation F-35A Joint Strike Fighter jets at Truax Air National Guard base in Madison, and to force clean-up of existing contamination of our water supply, streams and lakes due to PFAS discharged by the local airport and Guard.
Your survey response will be compiled and shared with you, the public and officials from Madison, Dane County Board, County Airport and Truax Field. We hope the survey will have a high participation rate so that we can conclusively show to our community leaders, the Air Force and the Air National Guard that existing fighter jet noise is already undesirable and disruptive. Deploying the far louder F-35 jets will only reduce our health and quality of life further. Our leaders need to understand that the current mission of the Truax Air National Guard is not compatible with a densely populated urban area.
Thank you for participating in this survey and sharing your experiences and concerns. Please share this survey with your friends, family, your churches, businesses that you frequent! We need everyone who is impacted by the F-16 and proposed F-35 fighter jets to participate. Please contact us if you would like to participate in our events or join our coalition to reverse the Air Force decision to deploy the F-35 fighter jets to our community.

We invite you to share stories of your experiences living with the F-16 fighter jets. Some ideas:
• How do you feel when you hear the jets, does it bother you?
• Do you have to stop what you are doing and wait for them to go by while in a conversation?
• How do you react when the jets are directly above you or close by?
• How do your children react to the noise?
• How do your pets react to the noise?
• Are feelings and experiences from past trauma (such as combat experience or other violence) triggered when the jets fly over? What is that experience like? How long does it take for you to recover?
