Airport criticism is exagerated

Seriously? Anti-airport poetry? (See Letters, June 1.) I am a pilot and a good running Lycoming aircraft engine IS poetry.
I very much question the claims made of noise. The airplane makes some sound and it is gone in a few moments. I have never seen items thrown from window sills. If statements like this are to be believed then the state should require tangible proof of any such claims.
Just because a DC3 came to the airport doesn’t mean anyone is going to start a charter service with them. It only shows that the pilot was capable.
A few safety improvements and some updating is what they are proposing and are not likely to include runway lights.
One thing I would like to know how many people bought homes or better yet built homes knowing full well the airport was there. And, surely not any of that construction affected the animals or the local environment. Yeah, I know, that’s different.
Good grief people, they are not building LAX.
