What do we as a county benefit from having these large planes flying low over our houses making all kinds of NOISE? Seriously, other than to help keep our international airport open, why are we putting up with this.

They abandoned GAFB to go to New Jersey. Keep your planes and their associated noise and pollution down there then.

They have to come here because their air corridor is too busy. jersey got the jobs, we got the shaft. That's because we have sh**t politicians with no juice.

The airport is thriving. You just can't see it because they're tiny "nano" planes flying around. Just like the jobs at the chip factory site in Marcy.

How do I know it is true? Because all of our local politicians said so - over and over and over ......

Jet Noise. The Sound Of Freedom.

Get used to it and quit whining. Besides, the newer aircraft aren't nearly as loud as the good ol' war birds that used to fly from The Griff back in the day.

...and Fedex and UPS will have air terminals at Griff. with a combined total of over 6,000 jobs. Each company estimates a cargo plane landing every 2 minutes. There will be talk of Tony Picente being Andrew Cuomo's running mate in 2016 when he runs for prez. Picente and DiMeo are marketing geniuses.

My father used those same words, RegularCrewChief when visitors would be startled by the roar of B-52s and KC-135s taking off on a hot August afternoon -- That's the Sound of Freedom!

Good. Let them enjoy the sound of freedom where the jobs went. Remember, they didn't need this base.

True, however believing it's half full doesn't make it so. If logic and reason prevailed, the base would still be here. Being positive they couldn't close it didn't work out too well.
