SFO rockin’ and rollin’ up Mills Canyon last night, 1:30am to 2:15am.
Big boomers at 5:30 am.

Fed Up

These damn planes have been going nonstop for two days. WTF?


1 and 1:30 am again. Always noise, just noting the boomers.

Lucky you if you missed the 3:32 am one. But on to Joe’s helpful info about those 2 apps. Thank you, Joe. Everyone, please keep in mind that the airport has no noise limit it must abide by, but the city of San Francisco must investigate and mitigate what changed almost 4 years ago to produce the intolerable runway AND, recently, the engine testing in the early hours. Please urge others to join sforunwaynoise.com so we can put pressure on SF to do that. Thank you. Sally Meakin, [email protected]

That app doesn't even report noise complaints to the FAA, what's the point?


Complaints don't go to the FAA. They go to the noise abatement office at SFO that is ultimately the city of San Francisco's responsibility. Please try to keep up.




While we are talking apps, here is a clip from today's city e-newsletter:

The City is working to improve the parking experience for residents and patrons in Burlingame's commercial areas. The smart parking meters installed in the Burlingame Avenue and Broadway commercial core areas already accept coins, credit, and debit cards. Now, parkers can pay their meters through a new smart-phone application called Park Smarter. Review the flyer below for instructions on how to download and use the Park Smarter app. (from Google Play or IOS Apple Store).


The whole house is shaking from the planes. What is going on over there tonight?

2:00 am thundering. Why? Why not 10 pm or 6 am? Jeez.

One plane, one airline.

Sally Meakin

I suspect the airport’s mid-night engine testing run-ups have begun again OUTSIDE of what I think are their soundproofed run-up buildings. We all remember the 2 am - 3 am roars a few years back that seemed to have stopped a few years ago. This morning the testings were very much audible. Began a month or two ago, methinks.
