Isn't such a close distance to the runway rather dangerous for your ears?

Here's a question that the ramper part of me has been wondering for months... How and where did they load cargo and baggage on the Concorde?

Luggages were stored in a compartment located completely at the rear of the aircraft

Anyway, I thought that the Concorde had a steeper takeoff than that
|Quoting VC10 (Reply 19):|
Rememeber Concorde's performance was not that spectacular at the lower airspeeds associated with flight just after take-off, and on the 31L dep at JFK shortly after the gear was on it's way up and the left turn initiated the reheats would go off and the engines throttle for noise abatement reasons, ie quiet over the listening post. Once past the post some extra RPM would be added to give the aircraft the power to reach the height required for the 31l dep proceedure
