"But some residents feel threatened by the big cargo planes now flying over their homes "

The facility was originally opened in June 1942 as Lockbourne Army Airfield. Stop your whining about airport noise\big planes, you knew what were getting into.

"Whitaker said that the authority has had a good relationship with neighbors in areas such as Groveport." What a crock! Those ingrates in Groveport constantly complain about the military flying in and out of Rickenbacker. Sure, they love the freedom the military provides but God forbid that the Air Force be able to train. Hypocrisy at its finest!

People never cease to amaze me.

If the airport was there before you, then you have no right to complain about noise.

The village of Groveport was established about 150 years ago. Don't think the airport were there before that. Using your rationale, if the village was there before the airport, the port authority should not complain when they are restricted for the good of the village. Groveport originally agreed to allow the airport to go there as a glider training facility (no engines). During WWII, they agreed to allow B-52 training at the airport as a show of their patriotism. After that it was Katy bar the door. There is supposed to be a very involved noise agreement between the village, the residents, and the airport. Whatever happened to it? It was established when the airport was changed from strictly military to a mix of military and cargo in the mid-1980's and spelled out exactly where the planes could fly and how they were to take off and land. Any homes that went into the area after that agreement would have been located there with the understanding of that agreement. At the time it was written, it was the most comprehensive noise agreement ever but now it just seems to have disappeared. I know it is not being followed but it has not been voided either.

Did you move in 150 years ago? after WWII?

Groveport Resident is wrong about Groveport "allowing" B-52 training there during WWII. The first flight of a B-52 wasn't until 1952.

I seriously doubt that Groveport had any say about what what went on at Lockbourne.
