  Nate Cloud is my hero !!
Thanks Wayne! I Hope you saw the Wilmington paper Fri, 4/16. Jim Peter's FAA spokesperson was quoted as saying "Delaware's concerns will be considered, but that the present route structure will be continued to be used, so people in Nothern Delaware will continue to see flights go in and out....that is the reality of the situation. there is no short term plan to change the route structure". My feeling is that this is pretty arrogant. I love it when executives say "that is "reality". What the hell does that mean? If somebody takes a gun out and shoots you, and then says, "sorry, the fact that you're dead is reality"....is that some sort of executive speak BS that's supposed to justify the action?

I still haven't received a good answer to the question: How can a business take over a community to maintain their profit? If you think I'm being dramatic, please visit me during the frequent conditions where plane's land one after another directly overhead at ~2000' (10-13 miles out) on 1-2 minute intervals for several days in a row, and let me know if you think those are livable conditions. I don't recall being asked if it's ok for them to steal our reasonably peaceful environment. Is it "reality" that they continue to get salaries at our expense?

There IS other technology and controller procedures available that would remediate the situation at equivalent safety risk to todays flight management methods, but it represents additional cost to the FAA/PHL/Airline Cartel; so they won't do it when they can just do whatever they can get away with to the community's environment for free. Peters says there is "no short term solution". It would be more accurate to say there is not short term solution that we are willing to implement because it will cost more of our money, and then our profits will be reduced". We've been subject to this worsening situation for years!
