…But the Community continued to cry out in ever greater numbers.
And their complaints numbered in the thousands,
and then tens of thousands,
and then hundreds of thousands.
Crying out in a loud voice they said
“Oh Lord, remove this plague of noise and pollution from above our heads.”
And the FAA said:
“For sooth. This has not happened before within our short memories. Why did the communities never before complain?”
And the Air Traffic Control angels replied saying:
“Verily, the number of aircraft popping out of our bottom in ancient times were few. But now the number doth wax greatly.”
A brilliant and humorous analysis of how FAA failed to serve the people impacted by NextGen arrival changes, feeding San Francisco [KSFO] from the south. The technical details presented in this are also impressive, and quite informative for anyone burdened with the health and quality-of-life costs imposed by FAA’s worsening NextGen implementation debacle.
