F-35 opponents to discuss legal strategy

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Opponents of bringing F-35 jets to Vermont will discuss their legal strategy at a public meeting Wednesday night.

The Vermont Air Guard could be among the first bases in the country to get the next generation fighter-bombers. But opponents say the new jets are louder than the current F-16s and will make an already bad noise problem even worse for the neighborhoods surrounding the airport.

Opponents are considering legal action that could hold the airport liable for damage to property values if the F-35s are based there.

The public meeting is scheduled for Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Chamberlin School in South Burlington.
