Folks,
Many moons ago, QF would have one (and sometimes two) B707 flying at Avalon from 0600 to 2300K for around 40+ weeks per year.
There was a general prohibition on flying over Geelong Grammar School.
Needless to say, this was like red rag to a bull, many is the time 4 P&W JT3D-MC6 or -3B on meto power drowned out any alarm clocks at about 06.04K, 500 ft over said establishment, by that stage probably doing 250kt plus.
Certain kinds of "directives" do tend to be counter-productive.
Tootle pip!!
