New map understates noise impact of F-35B

The 2010 Environmental Impact Statement on the F-35B at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort indicated the "off-station" area impacted by noise at 12,463 acres. The recently released Air Installations Compatible Use Zones Planning Map (AICUZ) now predicts this to be 23,418 acres, an 88 percent increase. Close enough for government work.
