When I was thinking about moving to Pinehurst 15 years ago I was told that we get a lot of airplane traffic overhead from planes coming north past the airport, then turning around a bit north of us and going south by the same route to land. Before I made an offer on the house I sat in my car in front of it and timed and listened to the plane traffic. I clocked about one plane a minute, which surprised me. Most of the noise was faint and it didn’t bother me, so I bought the house. But once in a while (like this morning) I hear an intrusively loud plane overhead.
One of our neighbors has noticed a lot of airplane noise over the years and he wants to bring it to the attention of the Port of Seattle. Folks in Lake Forest Park and Shoreline are also starting to report to the Port and the Port is taking note.
If you would like to help let the Port know about especially loud flyovers, when you hear one please report it. You will need the time and date of the noise occurrence, so make a note of that if you are going to log a report later. A cell phone’s clock is a reasonably accurate measure of time, and may help pinpoint the source of the noise with more precision than a traditional wall clock.
