     East Bay residents might hear the loud engines of two F-16 jets  that are doing fly bys at three different locations Monday for Memorial  Day, an Oakland International Airport spokeswoman said.

    The jets will fly over cemeteries in Lafayette and Hayward and a  park in Danville at an altitude of 1,000 feet, according to airport  spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes.

    At about 10:30 a.m., the jets are scheduled to fly over Oakmont  Cemetery, located on Reliez Valley Road in Lafayette, followed by the Lone  Tree Cemetery on Fairview Avenue in Hayward at 11:12 a.m.

    At 11:22 a.m., the jets are scheduled to fly by Oak Hill Park on  Stone Valley Road in Danville, where the city is holding a Memorial Day  celebration.

    Residents with noise concerns can call the airport's noise hotline  at (510) 563-6463.
