It was all good natured s...

Re: Proposed new flight-paths

Evidently, it is something to do with a new EU directive, so don't expect it to be logical or make any sense to anyone.

The intention appears to be to minimise damage to protected areas but the report acknowledges that there will be a considerable noise impact for many centres of population that were pre...
