I would love prior notification so I can run outside and watch the jets like a 10 year old.

Real talk tho - if you hear jets flying over and think "omg another 9/11" rather than "must be a missing man formation" you might want to talk to a therapist.

OOh I'd sign it for that reason. And when the V-22s go over, too.

We considered including enthusiasts but seemed like a weak argument

No. The cemetery lists what funerals are happening every day; figure it out.

So that makes you a Karen's Karen. Maybe you should send out KarenAlert texts to keep everybody informed.

From a logistics pov, what would that look like? A mass text notification would be more of a nuisance, by and large, and a published calendar wouldn't get to everyone. I could see a text service you could sign up for, though

It's all in the petition: AlertDC, announcements on social media and websites, as well as issuing press releases in advance. Guess I'd mistakenly assumed that they did this already, like any other responsible organization might.

Nothing responsible about increasing use of public alert systems so people start tuning them out.

Actually if you subscribed to it or read the petition you would see there are categories and they are inconsistently applied.

Even PoPville, as slow as Dan is to post some things, post about the flyovers in the mornings.

he actually got yesterday's wrong as Arlington Cem' Media Chief told me it wasn't for Collins, but he couldn't tell me who it was for because the family declined media access. They are presently a team of 2, coordinates 25-30 funerals a day. Flyovers are coordinated between individual military branches and the FAA, AlertDC gets the information from FAA.
Considering whether this needs to be re-addressed to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin or head of the FAA acting Administrator Billy Nolen.

Oh, you are a serious and actually bothering the understaffed Arlington Cemetery staff who focus on making sure our fallen heroes receive a proper and dignified burial? I'm sure Sec. Austin will get right on that.

Yikes. You might want to move to somewhere like North Dakota, just avoid the area near Minot AFB.

I just read the petition and it seems pretty clear the ask is that the FAA work with AlertDC, not asking Arlington Cemetery folks to do more... the FAA already has the flyover info and the ability to coordinate with AlertDC, it's just asking them to be consistent. Seems pretty uncontroversial IMO.
