The opposition extends from the impact of the jets, and the next generation of jets, on the unique recreational activities enjoyed by Torontonians on the islands. It extends as well to all corners of the South Bayview group of neighborhoods where aircraft noise has increased noticeably since Porter Airlines started flying. Porter aircraft heading to Montreal or Ottawa have a very high incidence of flight over this area. The grinding noise of these planes is frequently heard well after midnight over Bennington Heights, Moore Park, Leaside and northwards. A sense of  life with a downtown runway can be gained by looking at the San Diego's Lindburgh Field where, over the years, the number of planes coming and going has grown to more than 600 planes a day. That's San Diego' downtown below.  Sign the petition. Source: South Bayview Bulldog article
