I now live in a fairly quiet area. Regional jets often overfly me, but they are on descent into the KRIC, so the engines are at low rpm. I hear and see a good number of single and twin piston props using the local executive airport, King Airs, biz jets, and even a Piaggio P180 make regular visits. There is also a T-28 hangared there, I see and hear it on weekends. Here lately, I see and hear a lot of military helicopters. There has been such a huge increase in military operations that a local tv station did a story on it. There conclusion was that although there has been a 30% increase in military operations, there is nothing to see, so just ignore it and pretend they are not there.
