Short film highlights disruption brought by F-35 fighter jets

In the past few months, flyers around Burlington have invited people to chime in on an issue they can’t avoid: the noise made by the National Guard’s F-35 fighter jets.

“Seeking F-35 comments,” the flyers and posters read. “All anonymous. Leave a voicemail.”

They included a phone number that led to a hotline established by local filmmakers Duane Peterson III and Patrick McCormack. The response was strong — more than 100 messages from people who wanted to talk about what it’s been like to spend a year and a half inside the flight patterns of Burlington’s F-35 jets.

The community’s messages have been incorporated into a short film called “Jet Line: Voicemails From the Flight Path,” which will premiere at an online event April 15. Peterson and McCormack say the project shows the jets have drastically changed the lives for some residents in the flightpath, which ranges through parts of Burlington, Winooski and Williston.
