This is going to sound conspiracy theory-ish and probably a bit crazy, but hear me out. I live a mile away from Little Rock Air Force Base.
My father worked on the C-130’s that fly over my house nearly every day for 22 years and he died in 2014. It is sun up to sundown, nonstop airplanes flying above my home, except for on weekends and holidays. The majority of the airplanes are c-130’s but of course there are all kinds of interesting aircraft: b-2 bombers, weird jetplanes, army aircraft…
One weird aircraft was I swear as big as a boat in the sky, it didn’t even have wings and it was just… slowly hovering there, it looked like a gigantic chandelier…. was in the evening and didn’t think to take pictures.
They have 4 or 5 different flight paths it seems. One: over my house, one across the neighbors across the street, and one through the woods next to my house, then the woods next to my neighbors house to the right of my house if you were looking into the driveway.
I am sick and tired of them constantly flying above my house. They seem to choose this route 70% or more of the time. They have no regard for the people below them because they fly directly over my home, over and over and over again. It is like being harrassed. On occasions, they fly so close, all my belongings in my house rattle…
When I was pregnant with my daughter, they flew over my house repeatedly, too. With pregnancy comes super human hearing: lack of sleep fucking SUCKS and they don’t give a crap that I’m a mom trying to raise my daughter and the airplanes even wake my toddler daughter up at night time.
If you are a C-130 pilot in LRAFB, please be respectful of the people below you. Stop flying over their homes and use the woods like you should, stop waking me up at night.
TWice: I’ve had them fly over my home for hours and hours, even at night repeatedly obviously intentionally fucking with me after I brought up harrassment from my employer to the DOJ, even causing my heart to race, giving me panic attacks, anxiety, and paranoia from the lack of sleep. The first event was in 2014, the second was last year in 2017.
Coinciding both times with these weird events were that the night sky lit up all night for days on end… obviously the military doing something weird and lighting up the whole frigging sky. FLying over and over, like… multiple planes within a very short time span and this went on for hours while I laid there trying to sleep. I believe the stress may have even damaged my heart or made my anxiety worse as I constantly feel pain from my anxiety in my chest.
The military needs to be more responsible and respectful of its citizens as I deserve PEACE and quiet in my home, the ability to sleep, have healthy air, etc etc.
TL;DR: C-130’s need to stop flying over homes and use the woods when they are able to, AND they need to warn people before they light up the sky for a week and freak people out.
Can ANYONE shine any light here of why they might do that for days on end (light up the night sky) as well as why it seemed to conincide strangely both times when I reported my devious employer (a HUGE life insurance company) to the DOJ?
Can anyone tell me why they would harrass a citizen, even accidentally? Do they have no brains in their head to realize they are flying over the same people’s houses OVER AND OVER again?
Why can’t our C-130’s use the woods and stop flying over my damn house?
