Live where, Gene? Near an airport? Thanks, but no... they're noisy... or did you not know that at the time? Do you use the airport Gene? Do flight delays aggravate you? Just curious as to who's "using two forks" here. I don't see them adding concrete here. I seem them moving a runway so they can do parallel ops and handle larger aircraft on that side of the airport. While it would increase traffic some, sounds like just another reason for folks to bitch.

And yes, that's negative...

Much like the statement given by Fat Fred Smith during the recent
hearings....." We need more runways ", We need Next Gen, We need more flights, We need the FAA to help us get more planes up !!
