Sorry, I love them. I love airplanes, and their skill is amazing. My dad knew some Tbird pilots (he was career Air Force and was an illustrator for a long time) and he took me to a lot of events or behind the scenes stuff at Nellis. One of his good friends was the official illustrator. He gave us a painting he did; he has a few in the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

I'm one of the people who wouldn't mind the noise of living near an airport.

They've done flybys about 3 times today, and I am insanely close to their flight path. My whole apartment shakes. All I can think is, "I hope this isn't what a country at war sounds like". It's SO loud. My cat runs under the bed every time.

My vote is the same as it is every year. I love 'em. The noise is temporary amd the show is fun to watch. It's just a part of summer to me.

I hate them so much. All I can think about is stressed-out, freaked-out animals (companion and wild) and the acute distress of people with PTSD. I can't consider them harmless annoyances anymore - because I know they're not harmless.

I think I might feel differently if they weren't a flying commercial for the military.

It's focused on Baltimore, but I'm sure it still applies.
