Peace and Quiet ... for how long

Posted on 17th April, 2020


For those of you enjoying the peace and quiet resulting from the lack of aircraft flying overhead due to COVID-19 restrictions, you may want to look at this flight mapping application of which I was recently reminded.

It will be interesting to see just how many aircraft fly overhead on a 'normal' day, and how many more would be overhead if Bristol Airport were to be expanded from 8 to 12 million passengers a year, including up to "operating within a rolling annualised cap of 4,000 night flights between the hours of 23:30 and 06:00 with no seasonal restrictions" as stated in the recent airport development application.with "flights every 3 minutes", as stated by the local Parish Council Airport Association.
