Near-constant aircraft noise in West Loop

It's 1 am and we just had yet another aircraft of some sort flying overhead for at least a half an hour.

This after several helicopters circled this afternoon around rush hour for over an hour.

I know we're near the Loop and I had no delusions that this would be whisper quiet, but the aircraft noise seems like it's getting excessive - it's every day, starting as early as 5 am on some days.

Is anyone else having issues? Any recommendations on who in the city should be contacted?

  • chi techie...i think they voted it down because they thought it was too dangerous with all the tall buildings in the area and the strong winds by the lake.

  • Thanks, I didn't know how that turned out. A friend of mine went to the hearings in support of the landing pad, but I never learned whether it was approved. Most of the opposition was from nearby residents who didn't want the noise.
