Air Force OK’s plan to base F-35 fighters in Vermont

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The US Air Force was expected to announce Tuesday that it has approved a plan to base its new F-35 fighter plane at Burlington International Airport despite complaints that the planes would be too noisy and pose a risk to the community, a city councilor said Tuesday.

Rosanne Greco, who is also a retired Air Force colonel, said she was informed of the decision and had seen a draft of the Pentagon’s Record of Decision approving the planes in Vermont. She opposes placement of the plane at the airport.
