LGA During The US Open (Tennis)

Wed Sep 01, 2004 12:57 am

I had the pleasure of attending the opening night matches at the US Open last night. I guess because of the weather, LGA take offs were ROARING directly overhead the stadium every 90 seconds. The players seemed to try and pause if the flights went over as they were about to serve.

The MD-80s were so much louder than most. The ERJ135s seemed to be the quietest. The largest and loudest however, was a DL 763 that seemed to be almost an arms reach away.

You're lucky a Northwest DC-9 didn't take off. Those are probably the loudest jets that take off at LGA.

I agree that DC-9s and MD-80s are very loud.

A few years ago, there was an attempt to divert the LGA traffic around the US Open, but it failed.

What about the old UA 727's? Those were pretty loud too!
