at Griffiss International Airport,
When Griffiss was an active military base, the traffic pattern was kept to the north side of the runway: Left traffic for r/w 15 and right traffic for r/w 33. This kept the low flying aircraft away from the Rome Hospital andresidential areas of the town. Nowadays, it seems there is no traffic pattern of any kind with C-5s and C-17s roaring over the town and hospital at what appears to be lower than normal altitudes. What's going on? Are the old traffic patterns no longer published?
