re: late night flights

I know it can be rough for residents, but in most cases, the airports were there first and the cities have grown out and around them, so the people who buy the houses or sign the leases do so knowing that there's an airport nearby.

Of course, that assumes that real-estate agents are honest — I know one couple who bought a house right under the approach to CYYZ 24L, after being assured by their slimy agent that the airport used the runway only for emergencies (I guess the definition of "emergency" is "when the wind is blowing from the southwest"). It was cool for their kids watching the planes passing low over the park playground, though.
