Letter: Serenity of yoga class was interrupted by jet noise

Editor,

This past Monday, I attended a yoga class, which was interrupted by fly-overs. The deafening noise incapacitated our instructor and she suspended class.

Students held hands over ears —we could not hear each other to establish a later date for class.

That day, the jets flew from 10 a.m. until well into the night. I have personally experience flights past midnight.

If this scene is not an example of extreme, unacceptable noise levels for humans and animals, I cannot imagine what is.

Our poor animals cannot shield their ears.

I understand the Navy’s need to practice. Yet I yearn for the quality of life I remember here in Central Whidbey just a few years ago. We and the Navy should be neighborly.
