Finally sanity prevails as reported in today’s Crimes on the notion of building anew beneath flight paths. I find it amusing that a federal government independent review is deemed an ‘air swing’ by the Tralee developers. Give it up already!
Mr Albanese also attacked the notion that because planes flew over homes in Sydney and Melbourne they should be allowed to fly over homes in other areas.
”I have a view that’s been expressed before and is in the white paper, where we have greenfield sites under flight paths, then let’s not repeat the mistakes of the past.
”And frankly I’m flabbergasted at the argument that is put up that says planes fly over houses in Sydney or Melbourne, therefore they should be able to fly over residents in other areas.”
Amen to that.
