    Default Planes & helicopters over residential areas.

    Seems like planes and helicopters have increased in flying intensity. I keep hearing these loud noises of planes flying by and even helicopters hovering in the skies around Cantonment area in the evening. Quite noisy.

    Has anyone taking shots of them in the skies from your flats?

    I got wokened up this morning by low flying jets in the Joo Chiat area. Not once but several low passes, it was extremely disturbing. It's bad enough they fly so low but why do it so early in the day? Put in a complaint, if you feel compelled, use the link below to the email form and select "Aircraft Noise" from the subject menu.

    Got some helicopter flying low level around Cantonment area. Sleeping, woken up by a loud choppy noise. Went outside, it's almost 9pm and totally dark. Cannot shoot. =\

    I work around airplanes and I find this pretty loud. Whatever it is I think the flights should be retimed to a later part of the day, that's just pure consideration. My windows rattled a little during the initial pass this morning.

    Guys, dun get so pissed off. Their intention might really be for the coming IMF event. They are the ones who are protecting our country too. So bear with this lor. When war comes, would you still want to complain if they are not around. Think again lor.

    you think the pilots and crew want to get up so early and fly is it? you think the planners like to receive complaints? or perhaps you think they are sadistic? be happy we even have jets and choppers that fly and didn't fall out of the sky, other country have trouble just refuelling the aircraft for training, if they could fly to begin with.
