Peaceful Chiricahua Skies started this petition to U.S. Air Force and

The U.S. Air Force is proposing increased F-16 flyovers over the Chiricahuas, Peloncillos, and other areas of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico in the Tombstone Military Operations Area (MOA).

This will potentially lead to:

  • Lower quality of life for our residents

  • Lower property values

  • Economic harm in terms of tourism and ranching

  • Noise pollution from F-16 fly-overs as low as 100 feet above ground level and sonic booms at altitudes as low as 5,000 feet

  • Fire risks from flares and pollution from chaff dropping

  • Risk of military aircraft crashes, affecting people and startling horses and livestock, as well as wildlife
  • Devastation to wildlife and unique biodiversity in this area

The military already has large federal proving grounds in AZ and NM over which this training can occur.
