Noise Restrictions On Aircraft

Sun May 08, 2005 6:56 am

hi, i was wondering which aaircraft are banned from which countries because of noise restrictions or other problems. I know that the b732 is banned from england because of this, and also other noisy aircraft.
I know about airlines like Phuket being banned for this reason, so which other airlines have been warned about these problems.
I came. I saw. I conquered

DC-8/9s and B-707/727/737s with US manufactured hush kits are banned in the EU. The diplomates are trying to resolve this.

I believe though that the official reason for this is not due to noise but rather pollution.
