Military planes seek hurricane refuge in New Hampshire

October 15, 2018

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — About 30 military aircraft, including F-16 fighter jets, have landed at Portsmouth International Airport in New Hampshire to seek refuge from Hurricane Michael.

The Portsmouth Herald reports the Pease Development Authority issued a noise advisory ahead of the planes’ arrival Wednesday.

Airport Director Paul Brean says the planes will make noise again during their scheduled takeoff Friday at noon. The F-16 fighters are especially noisy.

Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida last week and continued up the east coast to Virginia, leaving 17 people dead and flattening communities.
