Editor’s Note: We have received a few phone calls from people saying we got their words wrong in their Let ’Em Have It calls. Please make sure to speak slowly and clearly when you call in. There are some calls we can’t use at all because we can’t understand the person calling. Again, talk slowly and clearly, please.
Tick, tock. Recently in the Gondolier Sun, the Venice Municipal Airport manager said of the latest airport accident, “We experience three to four minor incidents every year.” In my opinion, it is only a matter of time before we have a major incident. Sit outside on any weekend afternoon and see and listen to the number of flights landing and taking off, if you live anywhere near the airport. There’s a very loud two-engine plane that is evidently used for training, as it makes circles in the sky and then comes back, presumably for practice of landings and takeoffs. The old thought that the airport was here before you were here doesn’t work. The airport was built for single-engine aircraft. It’s an accident waiting to happen. The fumes and noise bother people adjacent to the airport. The airport gets larger every year and the potential for problems gets larger every year.
