Why the planes?

San Luis ObispoOctober 8, 2013 

Can anyone explain to me why large military transport planes are taking off and landing numerous times daily from our airport? Helicopters as well. My wife and I have lived in Margarita Villas for years, and we have never experienced these low-level, extremely noisy and dangerous flights before now.

Take-offs are especially scary, with the planes seemingly passing only hundreds of feet above our home. What is this all about and is this activity necessary? We fear a sad tragedy awaits us.
