Perspective, it’s a wonderful thing.
Metropolitan Airports Commission noise staff monitored airplane noise Aug. 22 through Sept. 4 with temporary Remote Monitoring Towers, each with a noise monitoring radius of two miles. MAC staff worked with city representatives to choose the three sites.
This map shows the study area, the sites of the three temporary noise monitors, each monitor’s two-mile radius for measuring noise and typical departure operations at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
So if you hate plane noise, live in St Paul or Bloomington. Heck, even Richfield right west of the airport is quiet.
