But on the other hand, the morning Concorde used to disrupt lessons/lectures at the Staff College at Bracknell - which might explain a lot about our VSOs .....

[and NO - I didn't do ASC at Bracknell!!]

Twenty odd years ago I visited Widecombe Fair in Devon. They had a fancy dress competition, of which the winner was young lad clad in a cardboard replica of a Tornado with a stick out of the "jet pipe" and a flag emblazoned "ban low flying jets!" I like to think he won purely on the excellence of his costume rather than the message.

A friend at work used to go to school near Rheindahlen, during lessons teacher would say 'work quietly' Jaguars overhead to landing, teacher recommenced 30 minutes later 'work quietly' Jaguars taking off. Happened every school day. Never did her any harm, she was far cleverer than I and refused my dishonourable blandishments

Teeters - now THAT was a loud jet.
Small paper dart like shape off in the distance.
Sky shattering roar of four Olympus's.
While we were still living in London in early 2003, Tartaret, who was then very small used to stay with his grandmother in Twickenham.
The speedbird from JFK used to arrive regular as clockwork in the afternoon, and he'd toddle outside, point and say with great glee `Concorde!'
Never did him any harm.

I understand that the advances in science can scare some of the older generation so this might not seem reasonable to some of the more mature posters here. I understand that in your youth, nothing killed you. You could smoke, lick lead-painted walls, drink from lead pipes and live in asbestos-laden houses without any trouble at all. It's only this namby-pamby generation with their new-fangled knowledge and research and science that suffer from ills such as asbestosis, lung cancer etc. Then again, we've not got polio and other diseases because someone did some research and advanced things on a little.
As a father of a young one, I am more than happy to read of such research. Pick something else to be outraged about, like the rising price of Worthers Originals.

My better half and later our 3 children all grew up on or around UK and RAFG airfields. Not only did they get their uni degrees, but also learned to lip read during Tornado 4 ship take offs and circuits.

Overheard a few years back:
Prospective Parents being conducted round the school. Four fast jets scream over the playing fields and disappear down the valley.
Parent "What are those?"
Schoolgirl guide (grinning) "Harriers, and my dad's flying the back left one."

Fast jet noise certainly has an effect on children's education.

I grew up in service schools surrounded by it and it definitely impeded the development of my German and Russian language skills!

This has brought back all the trauma of enduring the racket of tin triangles at low level over our school at Ay-Nik.

The trauma has hung over me like a dark cloud for over forty years.

My solicitor will be instructed forthwith.

"We've never received any reports or concerns of children suffering hearing loss or learning or cognitive difficulties,".....

Ahhhh right. So why is this study required then? Who has been allowed to build another ivory tower within the ADF? How does this improve capability? Let's get back to business. Too many people have long forgotten what the core mission actually is.

Effects of Jet Noise.

Was a rumour at Geilenkirchen ('60) that prolonged exposure to high frequency noise had an effect on the male gonads, leading to a large preponderance of female babies in the new generation.

Experience over the next two years seemed to bear this out.

Hence the famous comment:

Just to add to the chorus of people saying this is ridiculous…

I grew up in the uncharted wastelands of North Yorkshire where Vulcans, Phantoms, and Buccs flew over our school at ridiculously low altitude and ridiculously high speed on a near daily basis…did it affect me?

Hell yes it did!!

Horrendous eyesight took the military out of my reach but I was an airline Captain at 29 and have spent the last 9 years of my career as an instructor in a major airline training department.

So did jet noise affect me…? I'd say so.

I think this is 'noisest' in that it discriminates against different types of noises...

That's like, unfair...

Yes, blood, surely all noises is a distraction and not just jet noise, and all that? So let's live, like, in total silence, like monks and sh!t, and then we won't have to listen to the bleat of the yoghurt-knitting Guardianista whinge on about nonsense like this...isn't it?

Random...it's like, against noise and rights and that...

Word...
