Teddington put up a complaint about the trial run ways.  Why isn't Hampton? The last three nighst we have had take off and landings. You only have to stand in your back garden to see this.  As for hearing they have been so low that I have had to turn up my tv.  Can we stand up against this as Teddington did?  When I moved into Teddington in 1978 I was not in an official flight path.  Now we are getting this in Hampton, last night was awful.  Tonight nearly as bad, but as I said, stand in your back garden and you will see landings as well as take offs, we have ever only got take offs on a sunny day with west wind, not now.

The trains need priority over the 'planes. Since the new timings for the level crossing gates have been introduced Percy Road, Station Road. Oldfield Road grind to a halt at these times. Impatient drivers driving on the wrong side of the road to avoid waiting, cars and buses blocking the box junctions. Hampton Junior school children are at risk in the morning and afternoon because of this.
There will be a terrible accident before too long unless something is done soon. Why are the council not doing anything?

I thought that a wee bit rude, I started a discussion about 'planes' there is another one for the level crossing which has been going on for sometime maybe your comments would be better in the correct place.

I obviously live in Hampton and don't find the 'planes a problem at all. In fact I quite like them! Do you never fly? I am sorry I upset you by again highlighting what seems to me, and many others, a more pressing problem.

The "Teddington Town" - led objections to the Heathrow flight path trials encompassed the whole local area, including Hampton, Twickenham and surroundings. I added my complaints to the list and called the Heathrow Noise complaints line more than once as well: http://www.heathrowairport.com/noise/what-you-can-do/make-a-complai...

The campaign, as well as pressure from various other groups, was successful in getting the trials shortened, several updates have been posted on the website: http://teddingtontown.co.uk/2014/10/28/heathrow-trials-update/

However there is now some disagreement as Heathrow claim the trials have stopped and and the noise should have gone back to the previous levels. Some residents disagree.  

Living where we do in North Hampton aircraft come over us following take-off, not landing - planes have to approach in a straight line with the runways from some miles out, coming in over Kew then Hounslow if flying from the East, and Eton/Wraysbury if from the West. Those coming directly over us are all on take-off, but do fly in various directions.  

Those who use Twitter can follow @HeathrowNoise, which gives updates on when the airport operations have to switch from one direction to the other due to the weather, or anything else. 

The planes have always gone over Hampton (or at least they have since I have been living here - 29 years) when the wind is in the East.  You probably notice them on a sunny day because easterly winds tend to bring better weather than Westerlies.  They don`t land over here either.  Never have.  They drop their landing gear over Richmond and approach from there.  They are no lower either as the climb rate hasn`t changed.

Many years ago I was employed on 'Security' At a big hotel near Heathrow. This was the first few weeks into the Terminal 5 'Enquiry'. I remember looking around at all the Lawyers sitting there in their wigs and gowns and all the 'Hangers on' saying to myself I know which way this is going to go. Two years and hundreds of millions of pounds later the Inspector recommended the building of T5. Now, if you are employed at Heathrow this is a good thing, if you live under the flight path a bad thing. But one thing is for sure the planes have to fly over somebody and the powers that be do not much care who it is. Yours aye. Bryan.

As I said I lived in Teddington from 1978 and here in Hampton for the last 15 years.  I know take offs and landings, believe me we have had landings over the last few days.  Yes on a sunny day I know they go over Hampton.  Hasn't anyone noticed the difference in the noise the last few days?  I will go to the website that Clive put up and work from there.  I really can tell the difference between landings and take offs, planes that land come down those they are taking off go up, I have stood in my garden and seen them descend, the trials may have been cut short over Teddington but because of EU ruling they have to do these trials and we are now getting them.  Even on a bad night with take offs I do not have to turn my tv up!!!!

Thank you Clive I have now logged my complaint, I didn't know of the site before. Jan

Each unto their own, I lived under Concord's flight path for years and no one could speak or talk on the phone, the house rattled, that was Teddington.  As I previously said.  In 1978 we were not officially in a flight path.  I accept planes have to fly out but this has altered and we are getting night flights, maybe you can sleep through them and even hear your television, I can't hence my objections.  I have not flown for 4 years and previously to that I mainly flew from Gatwick as you have to pay extra to fly from Heathrow and most holiday companies do not use Heathrow.  The only time I have flown from there was on long haul flights.  This is a trial to get another runway, think of my grandchildren when they grow up, like Hounslow and Stanwell Moor, we have to have a compromise.  Many countries that I have visited take off and land over the sea.  Hong Kong even changed it's airport, I landed there between rows of flats, it has moved

An entry into another’s airspace is a trespass even if the trespasser doesn’t touch the surface of the earth. Airplanes may trespass by flying low over a person’s property, for example. An airplane trespasses by flying low enough over the surface to interfere with the owner’s reasonable use and enjoyment of her surface.

Interesting!

Here is some relevant US case law :-)  https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/328/256/case.html In this case, the chicken farmer did get compensation for the impact of low flying military flights over his farm, but unfortunately the court rejected the "ancient doctrine that at common law ownership of the land extended to the periphery of the universe".

Hi Paul, what I quoted was from English law, it doesn't give any precedence over infinity, but whether it interfere's with my use and enjoyment of my surface, which of course the planes don't allow.  I know the planes fly over, I have known that since 1978, having been born and bred in a place that doesn't have a flight path, not even today and it use to be Kent and is now Greater London.  I like it here so don't want to move back and my children and grandchildren are here.   It's the amount we are getting at the moment that I find disturbing
