Airport noise is targeted by group

THE CREATION OF A GROUP to work on ways to curb noise from Long Beach and other area airports was approved at a January meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council.

In an effort to tackle issues related to noise from aircraft flying over Surf City, an Air Traffic Noise Working Group has been formed. It now consists of council members Patrick Brenden and Barbara Delgleize, a dozen Huntington Beach residents and city staff members.

The first two meetings were held on Jan. 31 and Feb. 21. The next will be held on Wednesday, March 7. The group has met with representatives from Newport Beach and Laguna Beach to see how they are reacting to noise and air traffic from flights over their cities.

“Many neighborhoods have experienced an increase of around-the-clock air noise,” said Brenden. “Forming this group is the first step in getting organized and forming a strategy before we approach the Federal Aviation Administration in making much-needed changes.”

  1. What part of I’ve been listening to planes fly over for 29 fn years don’t they get? I never bitched about it then no am I now! Find something better to do

  2. Flying lower and lower. Able to read planes flying into LAX in HB shouldn’t be possible. Planes flying into LB 15 miles away shouldn’t even be flying over HB, let alone less than a mile high. Stay over the ocean and come in at city/county line.
    A terrorist could take out a plane flying into LAX,LB and JW from College View park and the FAA wouldn’t have a clue to how it happened that three different planes taken down within one minute of each other going to three different airports.
    About the 10-10:30pm hour you can watch JW and LB jets criss/cross pathes trying to beat closing time.
