I live in the Marine Creek area, north of I820. We have a smallish regional airport, Meacham Field and we do get some annoying fly overs by small planes. People probably learning to fly, etc. Inside the house, we can't hear it. But all it takes is one goober flying over 15 times to really get on your nerves when sitting outside. Worse on weekends.

I live close to Alliance airport (north of Ft Worth) and 15 minutes west of Grapevine (northern DFW airport entrance)

We are not bothered by air traffic noise at all! - well then again, we came from the metro NY area lol! The noise that worried me when looking around here were train whistles, road noise, and ROOSTERS surprisingly! I found that we could become immune to many daytime noises, but a train passing by or a rooster crowing at 4am would be devastating to my husband who has a sleep disorder, and often works till midnight. It honestly was a surprise to me how many people in suburban developments around the DFW area keep chickens - with the dreaded noise making rooster!

This has a lot to do with whether you are in the runway path. I live off golden triangle and we are in the direct path of planes landing. While it's not too bad most of the time, sometimes planes fly pretty low and loud over the house. We're also close enough that when the Blue Angels come for shows it is ridiculously loud all week through prep runs and shows.

By comparison, I grew up in Hurst about fifteen minutes from DFW but not anywhere near the flight paths. I saw planes in the air all the time but only faint noise if you were outside during a quiet time. The only time I can remember really hearing a plane was on 9/11 in the middle of the day when everything was so quiet and a single plane flew into DFW.

Agree and live nearby. The military planes are obnoxious (what a waste of a budget) with their air shows, but other than that not affected by plane noise. The honking freight trains however are awful and would be unnecessary if people didn't blast their car radios. Locals like to drive huge noisy diesel trucks. Roosters should be limited by city ordnances though.
