Timing the outbound flights today - planes every 90 seconds.

that's about right. around 1100 total flights scheduled  per day, figure 550 of those as takeoffs. when they go over the bronx, it's clearly less intrusive for us. but as buzz said here, it's too much.

I guess this is part of the plan as LGA is looking to become a bigger airport - it used to only be for domestic flights and is now listed as an international airport

No, that's just because it has flights to Canada, which it has always had. There's no plan to introduce transatlantic flights from LGA.

It's actually funny when you go down to Texas there are some podunk airports that are "international" because they have a flight to Mexico.

"international" in an airport just means that they have customs/immigration officers on site. LGA runways aren't long enough for coast-to-coast flights, let alone flights to europe or elsewhere.

Extremely quiet today!  Guess they finished up all the runway work yesterday.  :)

Hi All,

The Queens Quiet Skies folks will give a talk May 17th 10am at the Farmers Market. Spread the word. The noise from LGA has been particularly bad as of late, as I'm sure you have noticed. Passing on the word.

Honestly do these talks do anything? I mean I submit a complain online every time but it just gets worse.

Honestly, I have no idea if they work but I can't agree that the planes are getting worse - I think they've been better than usual lately.

For those of you NOT concern or bothered by the noise.........think of the thousands of gallons of gas fumes that are being poured over the air you breathe. Totally outrageous that this is allowed to happen.

I have submitted my complaint. It started at 6:30 sharp and woke me up.

It still seems like a once-per-month thing.  The last time was 4 weeks ago, also on a Saturday.  I do think like you, though -- it's important to complain every time it happens so they don't think the residents are actually ok with the noise.

This runway closure is supposed to last til noon tomorrow 5/17/15.  http://webtrak5.bksv.com/panynj4

i've been here for 19 years, and there are years when it's more prevalent than others. this spring/summer, so far, is a bad one. i agree that it's important to complain, but, not to beat a dead horse, until we invent planes that can shoot straight up like rockets, one area or another will be affected by takeoffs from LGA. we tend to get pummeled two days every three or four weeks. our neighbors to the north and east get pummeled the other 25 days. i'll take two days versus 25. and no airplanes is really not an option for nyc. any more than no cars pr no subways.
