They would look like lights in the sky this time of year. Gets dark at 17:00.

I loved hanging out on the perimeter road when F-16's were taking off with afterburners. Gave me chilles. So awesome.

That's so awesome. Occasionally there will be Harriers or Hornets at SBA and everyone knows when they take off. Years ago one of my teachers was dating a Marine F/A-18 pilot and he would land the plane at SBA to visit her when he could. A few times he would do a fly-by down State St in Santa Barbara breaking almost every rule known to man because he knew she was there shopping.

Since they changed from F-16s to F-15s you get two for the price of one on freedom noise.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

They're actually quieter than the F-16s believe it or not. The noisiest jets are the F-18s that fly over from Lemoore. I never did find out why they fly over here but they are extremely loud.

Yeah, back when the EA-6B 'Prowler' was flying, one got to hear some noise. It's parked now, but it had a larger growl than the current F-18.

Not too far from where they were built.

I would of loved to see those Phantoms launch.
