There really should be large signs near the airport that warn its a high
noise area. That way, folks coming to buy houses would see them and get
turned off right away. Instead they shop/buy when it's a quiet day and then
get a nasty surprise when one day the airport gets busy.

	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
