Ewa residents in flight path to endure noise for months

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Apr 11, 2014

~~<p><strong><span style="font-size: 12px;">Question:</span></strong><span style="font-size: 12px;"> I live in Ewa by Gentry. Yes, it is in the flight path of Honolulu Airport, and I did sign a covenant that stated airplanes will fly directly overhead between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Once in a while, the airport does runway work that requires planes to fly at all hours overhead, but that's only for a few days and not very often. This past January, we were notified that runway work would be taking place the entire month of February. Well, it's April, and the planes are still flying over at all hours. Can you imagine what it's like to have a plane fly overhead at 3 a.m.? Is the runway work not finished yet? As I write this, four planes have already flown over!</span></p>
<p class="p1"><strong>Answer:</strong> You'll have to bear with the overhead flights for several more months: The unexpected runway repairs won't be finished until early fall at the earliest.</p>
