“Residents in south Airdrie concerned about ‘increase in flight traffic,’” July 17

Dear Editor,

Andrew Szekeres wrote a article concerning air traffic, the new runway and residents of Kings Heights.

It seems that the interviews took the political way around the subject. Mayor Peter Brown and Jody Moseley talk about increased air traffic which isn’t what the residents of Kings Heights are talking about.

I don’t believe any of us had time to stand outside and do airplane counts before and after June 28. The number of airplanes is probably the same, it’s just that now the planes are all passing over our part of the city.

Prior to June 28, as residents and taxpayers of Airdrie, we were entitled to enjoy our decks and backyards to entertain guests or just relax after a long day/week - now you must holler at each other or sit and wait until another plane passes.

At 2 a.m., they are still taking off over our homes. This is totally unacceptable - we were here first and I am sure the flight path can be changed enough so that we can all live in harmony.

Please let Mayor Peter Brown know you have noticed the difference. If this is OK then I can’t understand why Calgary has such a big concern with noisy motorbikes and automobiles – let’s all disturb each other anyway we can.

Are Calgary residents the elite and are Airdrie residents a slightly lower class?

Wesley Chamberlin, Airdrie
