Hey Alex, don't get me wrong I have nothing against aeroplanes or the 
people who fly them. If it wasn't for bad eyesight, I would be one of 

I only get concerned when some of the people flying certain planes fly 
too low and try to prune the trees in my garden. It's a bit nerve 
wracking when they fly so low that we can hear and feel the cavitation 
effect of their propellers as they go past and have the windows rattle 
because of it.

Not to mention the effect it has on TV, radio and wireless networking.

There's are lot of space up there, they don't have to fly at ground level 
to achieve their objectives, and my trees don't need to be pruned.
