I would like to say I am AGAINST night flights during the hours proposed between 11pm and 7am over Thanet.
We have a successful hotel with a strong customer base. Guests come for the peace and quiet of the seaside, an important part of a good vacation, includes being able NOT to be disturbed during these hours.
I wish to declare that I am totally AGAINST any night flights between 11.00 pm and 7.00 am at Manston airport.
The noise projected from these over-sized planes is horrendous and is completely underestimated by the airport authorities and their advisers. QC 2 is VERY LOUD and will always wake everyone up, whilst QC 4 is UNBEARABLE and is not allowed at other airports during the night.
