West Seattle has been experiencing increased aircraft traffic noise in my opinion. If you have been noticing the same, please call the noise complaint line 206-787-5393.
WS needs to complain since they didn’t include our neighborhood when they changed the flight pattern to fly a U-turn around Alki point for the south bound approaches. Today it has been north bound climbing traffic. Getting worse. Please call if you have noticed. It is monitored by a 3rd party so it might actually make a difference if enough of us call.February 6, 2013 at 5:17 am #784121February 6, 2013 at 5:35 am #784122
The phone number listed is for Seatac, an actual person will answer during business hour. They have the Boeing reporting number. Worst offenders are from Boeing (example-5:03am today, UPS landing at Boeing Airfield) but the every other minute traffic is Seatac. Good question. Thanks!February 6, 2013 at 7:00 am #784123
Jets or small planes? In Gatewood there are some very low flying (and loud) small planes often.February 6, 2013 at 2:26 pm #784124
I’ve noticed this for some time in Arbor Heights; glad I’m not the only one. Woke me up at 5 a.m. this morning, as a matter of fact. And the low-flying small planes seem to have become more of a problem as well. Even had a bit of a scare yesterday when a WW II era small aircraft swooped down over AH as if to drop a bomb. I’ll call the number(s). Thanks, West70.February 6, 2013 at 3:25 pm #784125
I have noticed and thought I was just getting grumpier. Thanks for the number, West70. Yes, smaller planes appear lower or louder, and larger planes have become a constant irritant.February 6, 2013 at 5:35 pm #784126
The commercial jets are flying low over the “Puget Sound” really skimming Alki lighthouse point. As well, there is a UPS 5 am flight that buzzes most of WS. The small planes are random but low and loud for sure.
Found a great website to actually identify the planes call numbers and altitudes.
Try http://webtrak.bksv.com/sea if you are at all interested in this. Very cool to be able to see who the culprits are. Play with it and you can go back to 5 am to check who it was. Then call the complaint line.
The complaint line operators supposedly meet monthly with the FAA who determines everything: flight paths, fines, etc
