“The MAA obtained FAA approval of a reuse plan in June 2010. That approval will allow it to sell the 190 parcels over the next five years.”
I was curious to see what had changed with the airports noise so I went to the FAA website and found this noise zone map from 1998.
When I compared it to the new noise zone map I discovered one interesting development. In 1998, a large portion of the
Oxford Square development in Elkridge was in the noise zone. This would have prohibited a fair amount of the projects residential development, not to mention making it an even less attractive site for a middle school.
Fortunately for David Scheffenacker, the 2007 map moves the noise zone line to just outside his development.
I suppose this means the airport has gotten quieter over the years, even as passenger traffic has increased.
And finally, just for fun, I ran across this video of airport take-offs and landings...
