I look at the depature end of 6 (or the arival end of 24 
depending on ...) and see a housing development going in.  
Now I think each how owner should be fully informed about the 
airport next door and to be told at seven AM on Saturday 
mornings you should expect arrivals / departures.  Not to 
mention the odd guy that arrives at two AM on a Thursday
