In the summer of 1940 RAF Kenley used to regularly receive complaints from some of the locals about the noise of Merlins being run up around dawn. Not sure if these NIMBYs quietened down a bit after the first Ju. 88s arrived.

Staying (loosely..) on the gliding topic, there was the case years ago of a noise complaint against what turned out to be a glider doing aerobatics; complainant turned out to be a stone-deaf retired colonel.
Has Britain become an anti-aviation nation, certainly compared to some of our near neighbours? It seems to me that this started to be the case in the early 1960s. Any thoughts on this?
