I live in a 50yr old neighborhood. I have lived here 15+ years. Suddenly all flights seem to be flying directly over our neighborhood which is ~14 miles from the airport. They are on approach and it is very loud. It is constant in the morning and wakes me. in the past we "occasionally" heard a plane. This is nuts! I have tied to call my Raleigh councilmen (Isley), but nothing...(surprise). Also left several messages with mayor's office, again no response. Cant get anyone at the airport, voice mail gauntlet..
any suggestions?

I'd suggest you call RDU Airport Noise Officer. They'll be able to tell you IF the flight paths have changed. They are very helpful. Moderator cut: off topic just do a google search for "RDU Aiport Noise" and you'll find it.

Maybe it is overflow air traffic for holiday traveling?

It's worth another shot.

What area are you living in? South of the airport? 14 miles out is one heck of a long way to be setting up for a final approach!

I remember when I use to go visit my grandmother (rest in peace) and I would love sleeping there because I loved hearing the planes go over the house. I dont know why but I did. I guess if I was around it every night it could become annoying but at the times I was there, I enjoyed it.

Angel, I know what you mean. My dearly departed aunt lived near the train tracks in a little ol' town & when I visited her the sound of the trains comforted me in the night. Years passed, I grew up, and I moved to the city where I could hear the same trains blowing their whistles from a mile away. Let's just say the romantic appeal was gone.

I'm wondering if this additional noise is a recent problem or if it's been going on for a year or more. It would be interesting to know if increased holiday traffic may be causing the OP's problems. Or maybe unusual wind patterns or something? Maybe? I know that normally we do not hear the planes in our neighborhood, but every once in a while we'll have a day or two when we can hear the planes & I always wonder if weather is causing the pilots to take altered flight paths.

Okay....where is this in Raleigh that's 14 miles from the airport but you hear planes flying basically right over your roof?

Putting this in perspective...WakeMed (Raleigh campus) is about 14 miles in the air from the RDU runways and it's on the other side of the city. If you are hearing this that far from the airport this has to be affecting a lot of other people too.
