I’m sick of periodic complaints about the skydiving plane. Something needs to be done about this. It’s simply unacceptable!
As a youth I grew up next to Sydney’s Smithy Airport. Much duress was suffered from TAA MD-DC9s flying overhead.
In an adjacent property today the sound of fossil fuel burning: a ride-on mower. I’m certain it will be followed by a brushcutter; followed by the slightly lower drone of that dumbest and most stupid invention of all time, the leaf blower!
When I first settled in the Shire I was constantly harassed: the sound of distant car tyres rolling across Myocum, exhalation of Harley Davidson, gas burner propelling a balloon… Worst of all, the day-long bombardment of tractors tending farmland.
I moved to Durrumbul, same thing. Suffolk, no good either: ocean was relentless. And let me tell you that national highway just unequivocally has to go.
So, how do we help these people that cannot handle the noise of aeroplanes? Earplugs! What about a fund providing earplugs free? I will gladly donate the first half-dozen pairs.
That ride-on is still bloody going; it’s been over an hour now. Reminds me of a scene from The Blues Brothers.
