Sometimes there are very late arrivals into Toronto Intl Airport (YYZ
) that you can't help but notice if you're awake at 2:00 to 3:00 am (and are listening to a scanner
When this happens (I guess these flights have delayed departures, etc), I can't help but wonder about noise complaints from people who live beside the airport, and I have even entertained the thought of.............
Do the pilots of these late arrivals ever turn off their logo lights once on final, or even consider doing so, to avoid public noise complaints from being aimed directly at their airline? (I live to far away to see their tails late at night).
I know a flight crew has more important things on their minds than noise complaints during final approach, but I've still wondered about this.
