Cleve Wilson, Dana Point

I, like most who read the Dana Point Times, am aware of the air traffic that our proximity to John Wayne Airport (SNA) brings, but this is not news. Speaking as an engineer who has been working on designing aircraft systems for 25 years, I am impressed with the reduction in noise emitted from airborne planes. The airport has been there for a long time and was likely active when Mr. McDonald’s house was being built. The time for comment was when the Public Comment Period was open regarding the changes to SNA. Yes, I can hear the 7 a.m. departures, but I can also hear the three Amtrak trains between 6:30 and 8 a.m. Comments are constructive when it is early enough to do something with them.
