Aircraft noise


Both Heathrow and City flight paths over SE23 today. This afternoon seems to be a flight at least every 5min. Took some approximate noise readings with phone app:
Heathrow flights (at higher altitude) 50-55db
City flights (at lower altitude) 60-65db

Certainly the City flights are loud enough to drown out the radio and conversation.


The LCY flights seem to be flying in lower than usual, at around 1,700 or below.

The Heathrow flights also seem lower today (according to Flightradar24) one just flown over Brockley Road at 3,725 ft


It’s been non stop over Honor Oak from 6am to 6.30am this morning, and loud enough to wake me through double glazing. Miserable.
