Shows what you know. A jet engine suck air in the front and blows out the back. In your stupid drawing mama and baby would be sucked up and spit out! If you don't like airplane noise move away from airports or move to Wyoming!

Yes, the crowd left, but a lot of idiots remain behind like Todd.

A cartoon, Todd, is like you, not necessarily literally true, but, in essence, revealing a fundamental truth.

AIRPLANE NOISE IS BAD, ALL NOISE IS BAD ESPECIALLY THE NOISE OF THE TRAINS ON THE ELEVATED LINES THAT CAN DESTROY HEARING,PROVEN TO INTERFERE WITH EDUCATION, STOP BUSINESSES FROM FUNCTIONING, BLOCKS CONVERSATION,
INTERRUPTS WATCHING TV...24 HOURS A DAY, AS MUCH AS 273 TIMES IN A 24 HOUR PERIOD AND EVERY 7 MINUTES DURING RUSH HOURS.
I WELCOME YOUR CARTOONIST TO 86TH STREET AND STILLWELL AVE TO DRAW ANOTHER NIFTY NOISE HORROR.

Here in Bay Ridge frequency of those low flying planes are from 30 sec to 2 min. They fly so low, often I can count windows of those planes, especially in clear evenings and nights- I stay inside with closed windows, and must turn on loud music, or wear earplugs or shooting earmuffs inside apartment most of the time.
It starts around 6:30am, and ends often after 1am. How to live through this constant noise bombardment? Sound increases by reflecting from multistory building creating horrable effect that I heard watching movies about WWII.
It is a war, war against us. Undeclared war, since they dropped it on our heads without warning or any open publicity in media.

If you look on FAA website, they boast that by 2012 this new technology of landing/ take-off planes "NextGen" will be implemented throughout all main airports in US.

The question is what to do about it? Is it possible to fight FAA?

Phyllis Pastuzyn from Woodside Queens says:
I have a plane a minute coming over my home. From 6 a.m until after 2 a.m.! I am so sleep deprived! Everytime a plane comes over my TV gets no signal with these new digital jobs. Can one only imagine all the perc and benzene we are sucking in??No wonder I am having daily nose bleds!! Every time a plane comes over I call either the Port of Authority or the Ombudsman P. Lundy, as I put there numbers into my seed dial. I am also video taping the planes coming over my home. I can tickle the toes of the people onboard the planes, they are so low!!! If anyone needs help to correct this craziness, contact me PLEASE!!!!! at PPastuzyn@aol.com. I am beginning why I am paying so much in property taxes for this torture and lack of Quality of Life!!!!!

Simon from bay ridge - bensonhurst says:
these low flying planes are maddening, they must be stopped.

we have no quality of life, who wants to hear the roars of jets flying all day long, not even every half hour, but every 30 seconds, give me a break.

this has to be put to an end, how much longer can the public have to listen to this.
