For 40 years, HAFB has been a critical home to the F-16 Fighter Jet.
The small, sleek silver tubes have a particular pitch as they break the sound barrier, or come whooshing in over our heads.
No one even notices after a few years.
Those days are gone.
The heftier, faster F35s make a much louder, and much deeper sound as they roar over head.
We can’t help but notice.
