I once made this VERY owl for someone. I was twelve, I think, and terribly earnest.

an incoming pilot asking about the crowd at 18c runway (overheard on the ATC scramble of schiphol airport)-- and the tower dude explaining that the antonov 378f just landed..

i'll probably hear the damn thing taking off right over my head tomorrow morning-- it's scheduled to leave at 07:00h. it produced 92 decibels on the way here so i guess i don't have to set the alarm clock



yeah i know, i'm a geek if you are too, open this in winamp or any other player: http://audio.liveatc.net:8012/eham.m3u

Do you have a sonometer set to "peak" in your living room, or did you conduct the level estimation by ear ?

it's what it said here: http://194.229.29.150/nomos/main.mxml

18c is the rw called "zwanenburgbaan" north to south. this aircraft didn't fly over here, but it will probably leave from 18c again.

i now see that they changed the stats to 85 decibel!


but yeah, i've learned how loud these things are--

55-60: able to hear it inside the house with window/balcony door closed
60-70: rumble interfering with regular conversation
70-80: louder than the tv
over 80: windows & cups in the cupboard rattle
over 85: cat hides under bed

most people get their forecasts in degrees on the weather channel

Frieda gets her forecasts in dB's on the airport channel

well, sometimes in the weekend where they're doing maintenance on the runways and only one is open and it happens to be the one that has a flight path right over my head, it will not be quiet. 48 hours of constant rumble. those are the days i don't want to be home and i am very happy with that website!


but yeah, the atc scramble is just geekness because of the antonov

Frieda, I feel your pain...
This guy:

Flies over our house on a regular basis going into Moffett Field. He's only got the 4 engines and we're about 8 miles away from the runway but it's still awfully loud, and it usually comes in at 2:30am. Plus we're at a part of the pattern where they have to rev the engines a little to stay on glide path.

I used to visit some people who lived in the house at the end of this runway.

You could see the tread on the planes' tires as they landed.

yeah it's the 225-- biggest plane in the world

latest update is that it will indeed take off from 18c-- which means that it has to use the overpass to cross the A4 highway-- imagine being stuck in a traffic jam and having that big mf taxiing in your face!

funkytuba-- 2:30 in the morning! i think i'm hearing the last one of the evening right now-- 0:53.. then the airplanes have to use the strict flight paths which are not over my head, thankfully..

My 11 year old niece called me today and we watched this video together on YouTube. It make me laugh.
