Umm guys....I think your a little low....

Anyone else live by an airport and have a plane occasionally come over too low?

I'm so used to it I typically don't notice the planes. But one just went over and it was loud! I even got up to look!

We used to have that all the time when we lived north of Charlotte. The approach patter ran right over the house, sometimes we could count the windows in a 737

Our air port that is close just has the small planes. DIA is an hour a way.

One day they had all the planes circling. Don't know what the deal was.

My then 19 month old son loved watching all the planes.

So we took him to the little air port a few weeks later and he didn't seem intrested in them at all.

My uncle once lived within "spitting" distance of Fort Knox, Kentucky area and fighter jets would fly over and practice "bombing" (by sighting) a neighbor's lake. On our first visit to his place I actually ducked when I heard the jet go over.

Sis lives not far from a local airport (small planes only) and once was freaked out by the sound of a "flying motorcycle". Turned out to be an autogyro (small helicopter).

Everytime I drive into Pearson (Toronto) I get freaked out by the planes coming in to land flying low over the highway.

a good 15 miles from the small airplane airport but over the summer the skywriters kept going down-one crashed into a ihop. the big planes go over our neighborhood and make turns(usually 2 in a row) military planes have been going aroun the spet 11 and also years ago in operation desert storm. the military planes are cool cause you have to be quick to catch them sometimes it sets the cats off in growling fits tho(poor babys

Yeah, it does happen sometimes. We live just east of the flight path and every now and again I think they've come in a tad too low! We have what they call a "port package" - triple-paned windows and special insulation to help keep out the noise - and I know when I can still hear them really well they're coming in kind of close! It doesn't bother me though.

Everytime i see one flying low- i get freaked out. That's one thing i never got over after 9/11. I don't like to see low flying planes.

We have cargo planes here....my step-dad calls them flying pigs....they are kinda huge! What's really fun with them is driving down the highway right under them as they are landing. I actually wanted them to do that when my nephew was here, but the times we were over that way no one was landing.

We are about 15 miles from the airport in Green Bay. The planes aren't too low then but its kind of cool when they have the special planes fly over Lambeau Field as many times you can see ( and of course hear them) before game time!!

We intentionally made sure that our home is on one of the approaches at the airport. I makes everyday an airshow!

Yes same here. When I worked I would see the planes land at the NE airport that became oddly busy after 9/11. Last year I had nothing but nightmares.

Well given your occupations, I'm not suprised!

We live not far (within 1/4 mile or less) from the landing strip of the runway for the airport here. If you are at the stoplight waiting to turn you will see them coming in and they can get very low!! At night it's worse cause all the sudden you hear them right over you swooping in for a landing. I hate living this close!

Someone had said a plane had hit an IHOP there....we had that happen here.
It wasn't a IHOP but a JoJo's which is basically the same thing. They were doing some kind of excersizes with the jets and it hit the restaurant and the hotel next to it. Killed several people at the hotel at a conference. Found them still in their chairs. (sorry, gorry) and a few people in the back of the restaurant. There was also a gas station next door so there was a lotta worry about it going. It was back in 1991 or 2 I think. It was big news here.

We live in the flightplan for O'hare Airport I guess. We're not actually NEAR the airport but we get a lot of planes flying over. Some of them are pretty loud but they're never really low like you see over the highway near O'hare... I've seen some over the highway where it felt like you could reach up and touch em!
