No, we’re not going to witness any warfare or attacks in the Oakland Hills this Friday and Saturday. However, some military aircraft will be operating around Oakland International Airport.
An all-points-bulletin is making the rounds, so that Oaklanders aren’t shocked by the noise.
We understand a T-38A jet aircraft, operated by the United States Air Force, is scheduled to land Friday at noon. It will depart sometime the next morning.
This is one of those major flying machines piloted for years by our top guns. It takes off with some intense afterburners that make everyone within earshot jump.
Oakland International will let us complain. If you want to share “aircraft noise concerns” with them, then call this hotline: 510-563-6463. But we think this rare T-38A sighting is worth relishing instead.
