Following last week's COMMENT column “Noise – Let’s get a balanced view” one is reminded of a story going the rounds about 30 years ago. We can’t actually verify it but it does sound true.
“When Concorde was being introduced there was a practice flight to Heathrow. The antis distributed postcards, addressed to the government, to the residents around Heathrow for them to post if they found the noise unacceptable. A large percentage of the postcards received were, according to the postmarks, posted before the aircraft arrived”.
And also with the Airport Operators Association's dinner in mind!
