Letter to the Editor: Airport noise

Your Jan. 15 article by Cathy Lenny about the noise military jets create near the Spirit of St. Louis Airport quoted nearby resident James Viviano as saying “… the jets are so loud and so low ….”

Well yes, that’s what happens near airports. Jets take off and jets land. And they are especially noisy during takeoff.

Aircraft have been flying in and out Spirit since it opened Aug. 30, 1964. So unless you are the original owner of a home built near Spirit prior to that date, may I suggest your complaints are falling on deaf ears. 

If you don’t enjoy aircraft noise, why buy a home near an airport? It would be akin to moving into a house next to a set of railroad tracks, and then complaining to Amtrak about the train noise.
