No reason why they couldn't fly south east after a 23 departure and head for the continent after Lydd. Seems the operator is keen to save a few quid on Jet A1 at the expense of the local population's sleep. Poor form for a 3:30am flight.
Would suggest a left turn after a 23 departure causes more noise disturbance than a right turn as this overflies Leigh and Canvey Island whereas the other option passes Eastwood and Rochford, where the residents are much less vocal in their opposition to night flights.
