Photo a Day: 21st March

Regardless of the colour of the sky, aircraft contrails are almost always visible in the skies over West London.  I don't understand residents who moan about the noise coming from Heathrow; if you don't like it, don't live in a suburb that's under the flight path.
Back in the day, I lived in a small cottage that had landing lights at the end of the garden ... so that these guys could see to land without taking our roof off.

We live quite near an airport and I actually love seeing the planes overhead. I know sometimes people mention it - if we're all in the garden. But they honestly don't bother me.

I agree totally! We are sometimes on the Gatwick flight path, depending on the wind direction, but to be honest I don't even notice them now.

I lived in the backyard of Washington Dulles airport for 4 years. Certain planes were noticeable taking off if the tv or radio wasn't on. I think you just get used to it. It was nice being able to sit on the deck and watch the planes coming & going.

It's like trains. You don't notice them after a while. We have these passing a little way from our house

Couldn't agree more about the planes. I've had a trip in a hercules, so I can appreciate how noisy it must have been for you!

I often wonder where they're off too and wish I was going with them.
